You’ll Be Dancing in the Streets 

Can you hear the voices? Michael Jackson, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas plus many other great talents created the unique Motown sound in Detroit. Plan a stop at the Motown Historic Museum – Hitsville USA, and feel the vibrations of the sound that rocked the music industry.

Hear the Roar

Hear the cheers and pass the peanuts.  Sports fans love The D, and the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Wings. For many folks, tailgate parties are more in than cocktail parties.  Every season offers a ballpark or arena full of professional athletes hitting, passing, dribbling or sending a puck across the ice.

You Auto Love Detroit

Where else can you take an automobile factory tour, visit where the first Model T was built, or be in awe of the great auto baron’s lush estates? Startup your engines and immerse yourself at the America’s greatest history attraction, The Henry Ford, with an amazing collection of transportation exhibits plus President John F. Kennedy’s limousine, a 50-ton Gothic steam engine, the Rosa Parks bus, and much more within the Ford museum.
