Michigan at a Glance

Detroit, Michigan - Compare Hotels

Detroit, Michigan

Detroit is the country's pre-eminent factory town. Even its best-known museum, Greenfield Village, celebrates the rise of industry as a cultural factor second to none in changing the way we live.

Outside of busness, people who come to the city to gamble in the casinos of nearby Windsor, Ontario, and a newer one in center-city Detroit.

There are plenty of sports fans who drive to the area to watch the Tigers, the Lions, the Red Wings and top-notch auto racing.

There are also aficionados of the Motown music scene, which holds on to its roots while keeping up with all that is new and good.

Motor City has a lot to rev your engine during the spring, summer, and fall. It can get a bit chilly during the winter but don’t write off January, as that is when Cobo Hall holds its annual Detroit Auto Show -- displaying the new goodies for gearheads. If you are planning on this event, book well in advance as many out-of-towners descend on Detroit.

About 150 years ago, a group of missionaries came from Germany to settle in Frankenmuth, a city between Flint and Saginaw.

The 4,400 residents take pride in keeping the German heritage alive. Businesses, area homes and farms still reflect the German ethics. Much of the architecture is still the same, and the flowers and greenery are what many visitors call the most authentic they have ever seen in the United States.

The Mighty Mackinac Bridge: by Carol Parsons.

Standing down on the shores of Lake Michigan staring at the Mackinac Bridge will give you the feeling of overwhelming power.

It's such a magnificent architectural structure. The beauty and prestige of the bridge has astonished (and continues to astonish) the millions that have seen it. To drive across it is a marvel in itself. People thought it could never be built; yet here it is, possibly the Eighth Wonder of the World.
