Visiting attractions in Detroit with airport transfers
Detroit is by far the largest city in Michigan and is also known for its lively nightlife and delicious food. Many also know the city as the birthplace of Motown, a chart-topping genre throughout the 1970’s and an echo of beauty in American music. The city is also a major port along the Detroit River, which means there are plenty of astounding views of the Great Lakes as well as delicious seafood.


When heading towards Detroit it is a good idea to book your airport ride along with your hotel stay. There are many hotel rooms to stay at with popular hotels such as Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center which is located very close to the Detroit Opera House and if you are wanting to be near downtown Detroit then you may prefer to stay at the MotorCity Casino Hotel.


The historic city of Detroit is famous for many things. Once it used to be the motor city of the US as huge companies like Ford Motors excelled here. It is also famous for its taste in music and has produced greats with the likes of the rap god Eminem and many others. Another thing the city is famous for is its abandoned buildings.


At present, though it has lost the tag of motor city, but Detroit is still considered to be an important corporate city in the state of Michigan. Apart from its financial offerings, the city is regarded for its scenic views as well. Detroit River drifting past the city makes its city skyline look amazing when observed from opposite end of the waters.
