Detroit Itinerary: Ways to Spend A Day or Two in the 'D'
Adventures aren’t limited to faraway vacation spots. From tours and sightseeing, dining and shopping, to hotels and cultural activities, there’s a whole lot to see and do right in our own backyard. So make a day (or a weekend) of it with this trek of Motown. Just remember to bring a pair of comfortable shoes.

We do it on vacation, so why not here at home?
It’s cheaper than hopping a plane. And it’s about time many of us got reacquainted with the city at the core of our region.
To help you get going, we offer the following highlights as an a la carte menu, of sorts. Pick and choose, mix and match, designing your own day, night, or weekend in Detroit’s downtown, Midtown, and nearby neighborhoods. Take the kids, book a guided tour if you prefer, or consider waking up at a downtown hotel with a skyline view for the real visitor experience.
Continue your local travels on a following weekend with a side trip to one of our suburban downtown districts. Or revive the classic pleasure of taking a Sunday drive. Add an ice-cream cone and you’ve got a day to remember.
