“Detroit Institute of Arts is a museum that includes more than 100 galleries, a 1,150-seat auditorium, a 380-seat lecture/recital hall, an art reference library, and a conservation services laboratory.”
“Without question, Selden Standard is responsible for kick-starting Detroit’s food scene when it opened seven years ago. And while you can’t go wrong with any of the food here, start with the “vegetables & such” portion of the menu, which includes things that are better than anything under a “vegetables & such” header should be. From there, check out the meat and fish section, which includes things like charred octopus and lamb ragu.”
“Belle Isle is a recreational island park located in the Detroit River. It is the country’s largest city island park, and at 982 acres, it is larger than New York City’s Central Park.”
“The Eastern Market area is named for the 19th-century market operating here, with vendors selling everything from tacos to colorful produce every Saturday. Sundays see the space packed with local jewelers and artists. Hip cafes and places serving classic Coney Island hot dogs dot the district whose warehouses are being revitalized with murals. There is live jazz and Motown music at relaxed Bert’s Warehouse Theatre.”
“ Detroit is also the home of MOTOWN. There’s no way you can reasonably visit Detroit without swinging by the Motown Museum. Loaded with history, it’s amazingly cool to see where some of the greatest legends in R&B recorded their tunes. It truly is Hitsville, U.S.”
