If you had to choose one word that best sums up Detroit, it would have to be exhilarating.  Music has played a big part of its history and has lead to the city’s world recognition.  And its cultural offerings are hard matched by other large cosmopolitan cities across the U.S.  Detroit has always been innovative in paving the way for creative cuisine thereby resulting in a good number of award-winning restaurants.  It has also led the way in the area of preservation, thus allowing for tourists to marvel in its rich historical past.  So if you’re looking for an interesting city with much to offer, then Detroit, Michigan is a great choice for your next vacation. 

Detroit is one of the largest cities in the United States, and it’s the home of the nation’s automobile industry as well as soul and R&B music.  Detroit gave birth to Motown, the first record label to be owned by an African American.  It featured an array of artists who became icons in American popular music.  Some of these musicians include Diana Ross & the Supremes, The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, and the Temptations.  And today, Detroit continues the legacy alive with important events like the International Jazz Festival, the Electronic Music Festival and the world renowned Concert of Colors.
