Detroit - Get Out -

Although Detroit itself provides only a limited number of attractions to visitors, the metropolitan area is large and diverse and contains many hot spots and attractions that are well worth visiting.
  Dearborn -- Detroit's neighbor to the Southwest and home of Ford Motor Company, Dearborn contains Greenfield Village (a sort of historical amusement park) and the Automotive Hall of Fame for car-lovers. Dearborn is also home to the largest Middle-Eastern population in the US, with mosques being a common sight and a wide selection of Middle-Eastern food and shopping.
  Plymouth -- Plymouth has an attractive downtown which is popular for local youth. Each year, the Plymouth Art Fair in July is well worth a visit.
  Royal Oak -- One of the hippest areas in Michigan, Royal Oak boasts an exciting night scene with a diverse and avant-garde musical culture.
  Troy -- Troy contains the magnificent Somerset Collection, one of the most upscale malls in the Midwest, and even the country. Visit Nordstrom, Marshall Field's, Henri Bendel, Ralph Lauren/Polo, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Co, Barney's New York, and more than 150 other specialty shops.
  Wyandotte -- The "Downriver Royal Oak" as it has been dubbed by locals, Wyandotte has a bustling, family-friendly downtown strip with mom-and-pop shopping, art galleries, a golf course, ice-cream parlor, a charming riverside park, and numerous dining opportunities. Come the third Friday of the month for free food, trolley and carriage rides, and themed fun events sponsored by local businesses. July of each year sees the Wyandotte Art Fair, one of the best in the country.

Other destinations outside the Metro Detroit area include:
  Canada -- specifically, Windsor, Ontario -- lies just across the Ambassador Bridge . Or through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel which is located right next to the Renaissance Center (good to use if you see traffic backed up onto I-75) This is the most heavily trafficked border crossing in the world, and it's shaped Windsor more than anything else; well-maintained, walkable streets, shops and restaurants as well as a casino and strip joints all attract Americans and Canadians alike. The lower drinking age (19) draws young Americans and ensures a vibrant club scene on weekends.
  Ann Arbor -- a nearby bustling college town, Ann Arbor offers many attractions of a self-enclosed small town. A thriving downtown, lots of culture, and plenty of students.
