Once a major manufacturing center that earned its title of “Motor City,” Detroit underwent a complete makeover over the last half-century that has shifted its focus from vehicles to visitors. It is an electric metropolis with a deep musical tradition and exciting nightlife, with a number of highly touted cultural festivals that spur hundreds of thousands of travelers to fly to Detroit each year.

Detroit is a city that truly comes to life after the sun sets. Downtown bursts with bars and restaurants, with some areas hosting nearly 100 establishments per square kilometer, each with its own theme, flavor and feel. Many visitors travel to Detroit to frequent Greektown, the heart of the entertainment district, which contains three major resort casino hotels. Still others enjoy the art and exhibitions on display within the galleries and museums of Detroit’s Cultural Center Historic District.
A wide variety of local celebrations take place each year, the most popular of which include the Electronic Music Festival, the Detroit International Jazz Festival, and the Concert of Colors, to name a few.
