CTW Must See
Detroit’s reputation is quickly changing, as new businesses are opening and creating a very lively, urban atmosphere. The abandoned, graffitied buildings have become incredible works of art; the RiverWalk provides beautiful parks and greenery along the Detroit River; and its many neighborhoods, while drastically different, bring the city together in a remarkable way.
Every weekend, no matter the weather, over 225 vendors fill the Eastern Market with delicious foods and fresh, local produce. Detroit’s Eastern Market has the largest open-air flowerbed market and is the largest historic public market in the US! After wandering through the Eastern Market, head downtown to see Detroit’s sporting arenas, the theater district, and some of its most impressive buildings, including the GM Renaissance building and The Guardian Building.
Detroit is home to a number of neighborhoods, such as Corktown, Greektown and Mexicantown. On the edge of Corktown, you’ll find the iconic (abandoned) train station that has been featured in many popular feature films! Nearby, you’ll find some of the city’s most popular bars and restaurants. And finally, along the river, you’ll find Hart Plaza, home to the Jazz Fest and the Monument to Joe Louis.
