Welcome To Detroit
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.

Known for auto shows, recently created Autopalooza (really a bunch of different auto events throughout the year) is a great place to start, visitors should also consider taking in some of the less expected events in Detroit such as Youmacon (similar to Comicon, but for Japanese pop culture), the annual Michigan Elvisfest and the Movement Electronic Music Festival.
