Travelers to Detroit may notice some signs of the city's economic challenges, but they'll also see the results of a decade-long revitalization effort and a proud, richly diverse city (anchor to a metro population of 4.4 million) determined to come out stronger.
Downtown's 3.5-mile Riverwalk follows the Detroit River past the gleaming towers of the Renaissance Center (left), home to General Motors and the Detroit Marriott Hotel. To the northwest, Woodward Avenue passes the Tigers' and Lions' stadiums. The fabulously reinvented Detroit Institute of Arts is among the museums clustered in the Cultural Center, while farther north, the Motown Historical Museum traces the city's musical legacy. The area's biggest draw is The Henry Ford, in Dearborn.
