Tips to know when travelling to Detroit

Detroit travel tips

1) Gain plenty of Instagram likes under the photo near the largest indoor waterfall in Detroit

An office building also can be interesting in Detroit if it has the largest indoor waterfall. Go to 1050 Woodward Avenue and insure. One Campus Martius has seventeen floors, and you can not miss the waterfall in the lobby. It climbs about fourteen floors and is completed by the most colourful assortment of suspended glass kites.

2) See how prominent families lived in Detroit

Head to 350 Estate street in Detroit and find Meadow Brook Hall. Built in the late 1920s for Matilda Dodge, a widow of car pioneer John Dodge, this is a fancy Tudor-revival style. Try to visit all 110 rooms here. After that, have a relaxing stroll in the gardens.

3) Hang out with locals at Lincoln Street Art Project in Detroit

The quick-witted youth of Detroit knows nobody can resist parties at fancy decorated abandoned industrial sites. Head to Lincoln Street Art Project and check out their DJ-fueled raves at midnight. Check working hours on the website.
