Detroit travel tips

1) Experience arts in the parking lot in Detroit

Yes, you did not misread the art in the parking lot. Head to Z Parking Structure on 1234 Library Street in Detroit to experience this combination of functionality with an opportunity to experience art. The ten-story parking garage hosts artwork from mural artists across the globe. Each level showcases something different.

2) Purchase fancy pottery in Detroit

The trendiest America's housewives would be glad to find themselves in Pewabic Pottery on 10125 E. Jefferson Avenue in Detroit. Since 1903 they have been making brilliantly glazed ceramic. The pottery now houses a ceramics museum, a workshop, a store, and a learning centre.

3) Ride your travel horse out off the beaten path to the Packard Plant in Detroit

If you think you have seen everything in Detroit, think about the Packard Plant on E Grand boulevard. This 1.5-million-sq-meters factory was neglected a long ago. It became one of Detroit's most iconic ruins. The place is completely safe in terms of inhabitants, just be careful not to get injured with various wracks and other stuff.
