Motown or the Motor City - Detroit is famous as the automobile capital of the world. Many may not realize that Detroit has an international riverfront, with Windsor, Ontario Canada across the river, a major casino destination, an amazing collection of pre-depression skyscrapers and the second largest theater district in the country.
