DETROIT:
TRANSFORMATIONS THROUGH CONVERSATIONS.

Detroit is committed to … Detroit. We are our own stewards: stewards of our local economy, our natural environment, and our authentic culture. Tourism here is a win for everyone because visitors here support the same things we do: our local businesses and resilient people while participating in community-driven tourism that weaves you into the city’s social and cultural fabric.

Visitors connect with the people who make our city dynamic while being immersed in a one-of-a-kind, proud culture of music, art, food and history. In turn, our local citizens, enterprises and businesses — from boutique to international — prosper thanks to your support.

Detroit is a city and a community like no other. We can’t wait to show it all off.

IN DETROIT
SUSTAINABILITY
IS A WAY OF LIFE
CULTURAL IMMERSION

Detroit is a melting pot of cultures, and we respect and draw inspiration from each of them. We’re the country’s largest Black-majority city, have the country’s largest Arab American community and thriving Latinx community. Our music, art and architecture — past present and future — prove innovation lives, works and thrives in Detroit.

DETROIT IS REALLY GOOD

CITY OF DETROIT

Detroit’s arts and culture are as important as its engines and electric vehicles

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Tourism should be a force for positive upkeep of our environment, today and tomorrow. From the ongoing revitalization of our green spaces and Detroit’s waterfront to our cutting-edge, LEED-certified Huntington Place Convention Center, Detroit is leading the charge in environmental revitalization and working to leave our environment better than we found it.

DETROIT RIVERFRONT CONSERVANCY

It’s an amazing environmental transformation. The Detroit riverfront has gone from an industrial wasteland to an open-air public space where people can gather and enjoy its natural beauty.

ECONOMIC EQUITY

Detroit encourages, supports and gives back to their own communities from downtown to our neighborhoods, including BIPOC spaces. Visitors here help do the same thing: growing our local businesses and getting to meet and support Detroit’s greatest asset: the people who live and work here.

THAT’S THE SPIRIT
