Here's a few of our favorite places to go in Detroit! Wherever you're at, you're never more than 10 minutes away from the next place. That's the great thing about the city of Detroit! Only things to be cautious of is their operating hours which are often weird times and some might require reservations. If you're checking out a different place, chances are we've been there!
