DETROIT

“THERE ARE CITIES THAT GET BY ON THEIR GOOD LOOKS, OFFER CLIMATE AND SCENERY, VIEWS OF MOUNTAINS OR OCEANS, ROCKBOUND OR WITH PALM TREES. AND THERE ARE CITIES LIKE DETROIT THAT HAVE TO WORK FOR A LIVING.”

- Elmore Leonard


Detroit_neighborhoods_v2.jpg

Highlighted here are a few of the neighborhoods that extend out from the downtown core of Detroit. You might have to drive or take a cab between these areas, but once there you will find plenty of amazing gems within walking distance as each area has a vibe all its own.

DOWNTOWN
Impressive architecture towers overhead while the radial street layout allows for pleasant meandering in this dense core that is experiencing rapid revitalization.

MIDTOWN
Just beyond the skyscrapers, things stretch out a little more in this neighborhood that features many of the city’s world class cultural institutions.

CORKTOWN
This historic neighborhood’s origin predates the Civil War and features a charming mix of residential streets, old school haunts and hot newcomers.

EASTERN MARKET
This area particularly picks up on Saturdays when the 150 year old open air market welcomes the public and the many surrounding businesses teem with life.
