01/01/2012

Detroit, Mich. — The latest edition of Visit Detroit is now available on newsstands and online. This issue puts readers in the driver's seat of the new Driving America exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum, gives them the inside scoop on luxury casino hotels and points out the most authentic and diverse Italian restaurants in the region.

Visit Detroit invites you into the Henry Ford Museum's newest exhibit, Driving America. Travel back in time as you admire the charm of the exhibit's 100 vehicles. From muscle cars to modern-day hybrids, you'll experience transportation from a car-lover's perspective. Driving America features 18 large touchscreens that share the cars' stories through images, videos and oral histories. Bring the experience home, and create your own custom collection of artifacts with the Driving America smart card, given to you when you enter the exhibit, which allows you to store and digitally transfer your personalized compilation later.

This issue also details the luxurious amenities of The D's famous casino hotels. Relax with a mani/pedi at the deluxe D.Tour Spa at MotorCity Casino Hotel, float your stresses away in the infinity edge saltwater pool at MGM Grand Detroit Casino or chance your luck at one of Greektown Casino Hotel's 2,600 slot machines. You will not fall short of a good time in the D, whether you're a gambler or not.

If you're looking for local cuisine that will tantalize your taste buds, look no further than Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties' fabulous Italian hot spots. Contributors and staff members of Visit Detroit reveal their favorite restaurants and the dishes you can expect to find at each location. Visit Roma, the oldest Italian restaurant in Detroit, or Zazios in Birmingham, the place Italians choose when dining out for true Italian cooking.

The entire magazine is now available online at the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB) website: www.visitdetroit.com.
