The automobile may be Detroit's biggest claim to fame – and we've got truck loads of car-lovin' activities year-round to prove it – but it's definitely just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to completely defining the Detroit experience. We've also got awesome art galleries and museums, America's greatest history attraction, Vegas-style gaming, Motown's first recording studio, beautiful beaches, shopping meccas and a fantastic foursome of professional sports teams. Plus, the people around here are just plain fun to hang with no matter the what, why or where. In this section, we've done a little homework for you, outlining the city's key districts and destinations that play a part in creating the metro Detroit experience. You'll find easy-to-follow themed itineraries here, too, so you can start designing your own custom-made Visit Detroit playbook.
We've declared that if you crave cars, culture, gaming, music or sports, Detroit has your back in every category. When you scan these themed experiences, you'll see why our claim is ironclad. Plus, we've thrown in a few extras.
We know that there's more to Detroit than meets the eye, you just need to know where to look and how to get around. That's why we have split things up into five easy-to-navigate destination districts for you.
