We recently visited Downtown Detroit to check out a newly opened business: Detroit Water Ice Factory and were pleasantly surprised at how alive the area was. We live in a neighboring suburb, but rarely go downtown do to our presumption of inactivity in the area. On this day my family and I walked around Campus Martius and encountered an open... More

There is very little worth while to see in Detroit. A scary, dangerous place, especially if you have Canadian plates, Avoid visiting Detroit.

Last time I visited, downtown was neglected. Detroit city deserves better than this, it had so much to add to American History.

Downtown Detroit has been making a comeback lately due to the influence of certain people, in particular Dan Gilbert. The downtown area centered around Campus Martius is being revitalized and it's great to be able to walk around and see all the history, beautiful architecture, eat the huge variety of great food and see a hockey, baseball, or football game....

Impossible to get around town. We went to the Tigers game & thought we we would grab a bite in the downtown area. Forget it, construction everywhere,it will probably be great once it's done. Not very traveler friendly at the moment.

It's definitely on the comeback trail! There is so much to do within walking distance,. Start at one of the waterfront festivals and wander in to Greektown for some great food and drink in one of the restaurants before donating your money to the Casino. (There is more than one casino that would be willing to take your money). There... More

Visited this lovely city whilst staying with relatives in Michigan in 1991. At the time we found it very friendly, even the police were friendly and had photos taken with them and their motorcycles. Ate afternoon tea in the rooftop restaurant at the top of 92 foot building, it was very interesting - could see over the River Windsor into... More
