Detroit, a historic city settled by the French on the banks of the Detroit River between Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie, makes a great weekend getaway.

Some highlights: The Detroit Institute of Arts and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History are must-sees, as is the Henry Ford Museum. Great Lebanese food is everywhere, and trendy Ferndale makes for a fun night on the town. Bring your passport and have lunch in nearby Windsor, Ontario, just two miles away; the Canadian influence in everywhere in Detroit.
