All about Detroit
When to visit
The best time to visit Detroit is late spring or early fall. In addition to offering visitors the most pleasant temperatures, these times of the year also showcase Michigan’s natural beauty—even in an urban center. Detroit winters are notoriously cold and long, and summers can be uncomfortably hot and humid. However, the city is well-equipped to handle all types of weather, and visitors can expect clear roads and sidewalks year-round.
The Motor City was—not surprisingly—designed for cars. Today, the fastest and most convenient way to get around the sprawling metropolis is by vehicle. Visitors without a car can explore downtown Detroit via the QLine streetcar, People Mover light rail, rideshare apps, and a comprehensive bus system. With its flat terrain and ample bike lanes, Detroit is a cycle-friendly city. Download the Transit app to access its MoGo bike-sharing program.
Visit museums! Detroit is proud of its vibrant history, which is beautifully presented in its dozens of museums. The Detroit Institute of Arts, Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Village, Motown Museum, and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History all offer engaging exhibits centered around the city and the world as a whole. Be sure to check opening times before your arrival, as some may be closed on select days.
