What to Do

Come explore Detroit - the true definition of a cultural mosaic, where big city life meets that small town feel. The city hosts people from all walks of life and businesses both old and new. The revitalization of Detroit shows off the inherent and intrinsic value of the city with a new twist. Take a stroll along Campus Martius Park in the shadow of Detroit’s historic art deco architecture or along the completely redeveloped Riverfront. On Saturday morning, grab a bite to eat and pick up your weekly groceries at Eastern Market, the largest farmers market east of the Mississippi. Try a meal at one of our award winning restaurants. Catch a play, concert or a sporting event in the second largest entertainment district in the US or see the famous Diego Rivera murals in the Detroit Institute of Arts. Come explore Detroit and see all the hidden gems the city has to offer.
