Downtown Detroit Hotspots

Share this:

We all have them. Our “spots.” Our “favs.” Our places to take out-of-towners. 

We thought it would be fun to share these as a community, so we’ve launched “Downtown Detroit Hotspots.” We’re asking Detroiters (and honorary Detroiters) to create their ideal Detroit Destination Day. 

There are no rules. You can start with a meal, activity or destination. Be creative. Tell us your go-to coffee shop, favorite corner of the DIA, best place to watch the freighters, where to listen to music or where to buy flowers. And, of course, where to eat, drink and shop! Just pick a start and go from there. 

We’ll share them here. 

Please include in your email your name and company/organization/neighborhood as available.
