Treat yourself with a trip to the Motor City
Do you like history, culture and cars? Book a flight to Detroit and discover the city across the water from Canada. Detroit is well-known for being the city where three large American car manufacturers, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, have their headquarters. But there’s so much more to the Motor City. For instance, you can discover the magnificent Guardian Building and visit Detroit Institute of Arts. Detroit is packed with life!
Impressive range of architecture
Detroit has long been part of America’s ‘Rust Belt’, the country’s former industrial heartland. However, it has successfully been transformed into a modern, attractive city! Stroll along the waterfront and admire the architecture, such as the postmodern neo-gothic towers of the new Detroit Center. Detroit is also a mecca for sports. You can see a Detroit Red Wings ice hockey match or watch the Detroit Tigers play baseball. Not only is Detroit the ideal destination for a city trip, it is also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in the United States. Treat yourself: book a flight to Detroit now!
Come and enjoy a Broadway show
Although Detroit’s centre is dominated by tall buildings, the city is not lacking in charming neighbourhoods. See the historic side of the city in Palmer Woods, Sherwood Forest and the university district. Detroit’s Theater District is the second largest in the US. You can see all Broadway shows here. The big advantage is that it’s much easier to get hold of tickets for shows here than in New York! Why not give the neighbours a wave? On Belle Isle, you’re literally between the United States and Canada.

ARTS & CULTURE
Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Jackson Five, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder: these are only a handful of the names that became world famous with Motown. In 1959, Berry Gordy founded his record label Motown in 2 simple houses on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. Above the door he hung a sign saying ‘Hitsville USA’. Arrogant? Perhaps, but he certainly proved himself right.
