For decades, the world changed, but Detroit stayed the same. You could go to any one of dozens of restaurants, dance floors, stages, shops, museums, or “ethnic festivals” downtown, and you could be guaranteed nothing would have been much different from your last visit.
How times change! It’s getting to the point where the annual guide for the Detroit area — originally dreamed up for visitors — could be a handy helper for the local yokel astonished by all the new eateries, electronic clubs, markets, galleries, and quirky new annual festivals of every stripe.
We hope this annual presentation shows some of the very best of Detroit, old and new, as well as some inventive ideas to stimulate your imagination when it comes to where to go and what to do.
We’ve come a long way since Detroit was regarded as that fading, industrial city used to apologizing for itself. There’s so much to see and experience, if only you know where to look. See if you don’t have a few more ideas after browsing through these articles.
