Motown, the Motor City, the Renaissance City or simply 3-1-3 (the area code) are all names used for Detroit. The only U.S. city actually lying north of Canada, Detroit is a huge, vibrant mecca for music, automobile manufacturing, and sports. It constantly reinvents itself moving along with the times.
The Paris of the West
The legendary contribution to American automobiles is well known as it being the birthplace of the motown sound, but how it came to be such an exciting city merits understanding too. Once occupied by the French (the word detroit is French for strait) because of its important trading location, the British fought for and won it in 1790. It became an American territory in 1796.
It figured prominently in the Civil War and by the turn of the century was going through something of a gilded age. It's architecture made people coin it 'the Paris of the West'. This age spawned such people as Henry Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Packard and other inventors, and then came the car. The rest is modern history.
Getting to know Detroit is also getting to know its history. Downtown is the center of everything, and while it has been a very commercial area, it has gone through a rebirth and now has some of the most expensive residential housing anywhere. All neighborhoods are undergoing revitalization, restoration and building. The Midtown or New Center Area is the cultural district and is home to beautiful 1920s architecture.
The area along the river is called the East Side while the West Side is historical and home to small neighborhoods. Wherever you find your Detroit apartment, history will be all around you.
In Town Gambling
There's so much to do in Detroit. Start with it being the largest city in the U.S. that openly has casinos. It is also a favorite city for major league sports. Super Bowls have been held here and all the pro teams have many passionate supporters. Significant museums can be found - like the Wright Museum of African American Culture and the Institute of Arts.
There's a big underground arts scene which is centered in some of the old industrial buildings. And, of course, the music scene spreads out all over the city.
The old immigrant neighborhoods provide a wealth of cuisine choices. Many people love Greektown. Many head to Mexicantown for places like Evie's Tamales or Mexican Village. Hamtramck is the place to go for genuine Polish cuisine. From five star to no stars, there are fantastic places to find once in your Detroit apartment.
Pulse on the Night
Nightlife is at the heart of Detroit. There's no real central area where you'll find a concentration of clubs. They are spread out everywhere and you will find places to dance and listen to masters and future masters. Hear jazz at Baker's Keyboard Lounge or go upscale at Bleu Room Experience for dancing.
The Majestic Theatre is a great venue for concerts but also has a cafe and a pool hall. Pulse Detroit is a popular Friday night scene too. Whatever your music or bar taste, its likely that your Detroit apartment will be near the action.
