Detroit


Detroit. The D. Motown. The Motor City. Michigan's biggest city has had some rough times, but in many ways, is on the rise. Detroit is where Art Deco skyscrapers rise blocks from restored Victorian cottages and where hip new art collectives belly-up next-door to neighborhood dive bars. With Wayne State University, University of Detroit Mercy and Marygrove College providing the brain power, exciting incubators like TechTown providing an economic catalyst, and sharp new lofts selling like hotcakes, Detroit is making some major moves in the 21st century.
