Jeff Counts gets behind the wheel to take us cruising the eclectic neighborhoods that comprise the “culture stew” that is Motor CityDetroit.
There’s great ethnic cuisine, extraordinary pre-war architecture, world-class museums, and a homegrown soundtrack, from Motown’s rhythm and blues to the undeniable pulse of rap.
Distinctive for their accuracy, simplicity, and conversational tone, the diverse travel guides in our Explorer's Great Destinations series meet the conflicting demands of the modern traveler. They're packed full of up-to-date information to help plan the perfect getaway. And they're compact and light enough to come along for the ride. A tool you'll turn to before, during, and after your trip, these guides include chapters on lodging, dining, transportation, history, shopping, recreation, and more; a section packed with practical information, such as lists of banks, hospitals, post offices, laundromats, numbers for police, fire, and rescue, and other relevant information; maps of regions and locales, and more.
