Historically, Detroit is part of the Rust Belt, the former industrial heartland of the United States. Much has been done to transform Detroit into a modern and attractive city – and it shows! Along the waterfront, the city shows a variety of architectural styles: the postmodern neo-Gothic towers of the new Detroit Center, for example. The city is also a sports Mecca: take in a Detroit Red Wings ice hockey match or a Detroit Tigers baseball game. Detroit is not only the ideal destination for a city trip, it is also the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in the USA. Let yourself be surprised: book a flight to Detroit now!
Although downtown Detroit is dominated by high-rise buildings, the city also has many pleasant areas. You can find historic neighbourhoods mainly in Palmer Woods, Sherwood Forest and the University District. The Detroit Theater District is the second largest in the US. All Broadway shows can be seen here and without the hassle of getting tickets as in, say, New York!
