The cradle of the Motown sound

If Detroit has any problem, that’s a PR problem. Since its auto industry tanked, the city lost its fame and glory, and today it is struggling to regain is status as a must-visit American destination. Look beyond the hype, look for the city’s true heart and essence, and you’ll discover enough to fill your Detroit travel guide. The city boasts amazing architecture, a few good museums and over 80 underground art galleries, beautiful parks and when it comes to entertainment, considering that this is the birthplace of American electro/techno music, you can easily understand that Detroit is still a great place to dance.
