A home to young idealists

Detroit is known as the “Motor City of the World.” According to the young people of Detroit and Forbes magazine, it is also one of the top ten happiest cities to live in. It is full of young idealists who are breathing new life into the city that fell on hard times. With Detroit’s small town feel and affordable cost of living, there is an endless list of ways to enjoy your time in Detroit. The downtown area is entirely walkable, so take a stroll down the Detroit Riverwalk or a self-guided tour of the city’s architectural gems.

If you are looking to learn something new, head down to the Ford Factory for a tour of the latest automotive innovations. Detroit is also the home to Motown. To help you find your rhythm, attend the Detroit International Jazz Festival for the smooth sounds of brass instruments or visit the Motown Museum.
