When WestJet flies to this destination:
Detroit, Michigan is a city of many names. Some call it the Motor City, home of the American automobile industry. Still an important transportation hub of the United States, Detroit offers visitors a glimpse of its proud history. Visit the Metro Detroit, known to some as the MotorCities National Heritage Area. It's here you'll find the Automotive Hall of Fame and the Walter P. Chrysler Museum - filled with antique, classic and concept vehicles. The Detroit Historical Museum celebrates the early years of the auto industry and its impact on the world. On the Detroit River, the GM Showroom features specialty cars and production models. You can also visit the homes of Detroit's biggest auto barons. Tour the estates of Meadow Brook Hall that Dodge pioneer John Dodge called home or visit the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, the home where auto legend Henry Ford II was raised.
Speaking of Henry Ford, car enthusiasts shouldn't miss The Henry Ford. Celebrated as the number one cultural tourism destination in Michigan, the Henry Ford Museum displays the automobile's past, present and future with interactive exhibits, an assembly line and auto plant tour, car displays over the last century and informative IMAX shows.
Detroit is also called Motown, named for the record label founded in 1960 by Barry Gordy, Jr. right in the heart of Detroit. The label brought Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Four Tops, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and The Miracles to radios across the U.S., helping African American artists to change not only the face of music but history and racial tolerance as well. You can still experience a little Motown of your own in Detroit's lively nightlife. Check out the Jazz Café in Music Hall, a prominent fixture in the area.
Detroit has also come to be known as the City of Champions, a title in homage to the success and popularity of its sports teams. Side-by-side baseball and football stadiums, both new in the last decade, create a lively neighbourhood filled with fans and fun sports bars. Grab a ticket for a Tigers baseball game at Comerica Park or a Lions football game next door at Ford Field. If you're visiting the area in the fall and winter, take in a Detroit Red Wings game and see one of the best teams in the NHL enjoy another victory on the ice.
