How To Make The Most Of A One Day Visit To Detroit
Detroit is undoubtedly one of America’s great cities, despite a reputation for being a bit rough around the edges. It’s a great place to visit for an extended break, but you can have just as much fun here in a single day. Here’s how.
Depending on how you want to spend your time, Detroit offers plenty of options. A visit to the city wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the Motown Museum where you can visit the legendary Studio A (where "Stop in the Name of Love" was first recorded) and sing along to Motown Records hits.
You might also want to check out the Detroit Institute of Arts for its 100 galleries packed with works by legendary artists, not to mention the Institute’s live music sessions on Fridays. Cap off your day with a visit to the Art Deco Guardian Building skyscraper, or maybe swing by John K. King Used & Rare Books for something to read on the trip home.
Detroit has a shockingly vibrant culinary scene. Head to Standby for a cocktail you won’t forget, or check out Buddy’s Pizza for deep-dish slices that have been wowing locals and visitors since 1946. If you’re looking for breakfast fare, Avalon International Breads makes some of the tastiest pastries and rolls around. And for dinner, seafood lovers will rejoice at Huron Room where nautical offerings are paired with friendly service.
Of course, if you want to stay overnight, Detroit offers plenty of cool spots to bed down. Trumbull & Porter Hotel is a cool and historic spot perfect for those with a mid-range budget, or you can opt for luxury at The Inn on Ferry Street, a boutique hotel made up of multiple Victorian mansions.
No matter what you do in Detroit, you’re bound to leave with plenty of awesome memories and a craving to return. For more of the coolest places to explore in America, click
