If you like art and culture the Detroit Institute of Arts is a must see on your trip to Detroit. Diego Rivera has a special room dedicated to his art. Go during the week and the crowds are not so big.

The Inn on Ferry Street is a bed and breakfast one block from the DIA. Other than that, you will have to stay 2-3 miles away, either at the St.Regis on West Grand Blvd. or in one of the hotels downtown. The MotorCity... More
