Detroit lies on the Detroit River which connects Lakes Eerie and St. Clair.

Across the river is the Canadian town of Windsor, reached through the tunnel west of the Renaissance Center, or by the Ambassador Bridge.

Detroit is not as bad as some reports make out, but it has seen better days.

The Renaissance Center, on the river, was built to help revitalise the centre of Detroit. The multipurpose complex has space for shops, offices, theatres, and hotels.

A world of fashion, specialty stores, restaurants and business offices are located in the Renaissance Center along with a Marriott Hotel.

GM World features a collection of General Motors' automobiles from the past to the present and on to the future.

Getting Around Detroit

The Detroit People Mover affects not only the image of the city but also plays a role in the attraction of conventions and tourism, businesses and entertainment to downtown Detroit.

Hop on board the Detroit People Mover and discover just how easy it is to learn about Detroit.

Around Michigan

Michigan gets its name from Lake Michigan; a derived Algonquian term for big water.

The State of Michigan is blessed with the riches of unspoiled nature: the nation's longest freshwater coastline, lakes that feel like oceans, golden beaches, an abundance of fresh produce straight from the farm.

Whether you are a cityscape adventurer or an outdoor enthusiast, a foodie or a thrill-seeker, travelling with your family or making memories with friends, you are on the brink of planning a vacation so unique, it can only be classified as Pure Michigan.

The Great Lakes

Michigan has a Great Lakes shoreline of about 5,310 km, and boasts more beaches than Hawaii. Shame about the climate.

Ships travelling from Lake Superior to Lake Huron drop 21 feet in the canal locks at Sault Ste. Marie, northern Michigan.

Tour boats also allow visitors the chance to experience the drop.

Located 50 miles north of the Mackinac Bridge, Soo Locks Boat Tours propose an educational and fun-filled adventure in historic Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.


The capital of Michigan often gets missed by most visitors to the state, as it's not on the coastal route.

In the 1840s a group of New York families came here to claim the land they had purchased, only to find it didn't exist.

The area was occupied by the Chippewa people but the disillusioned families remained, and named the new settlement after their former home in New York.
