Welcome to Detroit, MI!

Known alternately as Motor City or Motown, Detroit has developed a reputation during it's history as a haven for automobiles and music. Home to many domestic car companies, Detroit's economy was built on the American desire for personal transportation, a desire that the Motor City was only too happy to deliver on. The city's automotive industry makes it the ideal place for the North American International Auto Show, an annual event held in January. Detroit was also the site of a modern musical renaissance in the 1960s when Hitsville USA produced artists such as Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and others. The musical legacy continues with artists such as Eminem and the White Stripes hailing from the area. Detroit is linked to Windsor, Ontario, Canada by the Ambassador Bridge, making Detroit an important port of trade with Canada. Belle Isle Park is a noted attraction in Detroit, offering visitors a zoo, conservatory, aquarium and more.
