Visit Detroit’s Marvelous
Visit Detroit’s Marvelous Sites in a Luxury Vehicle
Slightly north of the western end of Lake Erie, Detroit is home to more than four million people. Despite its illustrious past, this city is frequently overlooked by travelers. While it was previously known for its automobile manufacturing sector, today’s contributions include sports and music. Through various revitalization initiatives, Detroit has acquired new appeal.
From world-class museums and incredible eateries to dive bars and an eclectic music scene, Detroit is one of America’s best places to explore. To help you plan a trip, here is our list of the best spots to visit in one of our luxury vehicles.
The Detroit Institute of Arts
This 130-year-old museum in Midtown has something for everyone. You’ll find over 65,000 art pieces here, from classic paintings to contemporary artworks, spread over 100 galleries. There’s so much to see that you may need to visit more than once! While it’s easy to get lost in all that art, if you plan your visit carefully, it’s possible to get through the best galleries in two hours or less.
Belle Isle Relaxation
After a fun ride on a Dream Limousines party bus, it’s easy to spend a whole day on Belle Isle, which is a 980-acre island park full of attractions and activities. Belle Isle is a great place for locals to gather for barbecues and picnics, for walking nature trails, and for relaxing on the beach.
The Eastern Market
At this vast marketplace, you’ll find tons of local foods, artisan crafts, jewelry, art, and much more. The market covers more than 40 acres and dates back over 150 years, making it one of the country’s oldest and largest public market districts. The Eastern Market is open on Saturdays, Sundays, and Tuesdays, but Saturdays tend to be the busiest days for those looking for fresh produce and poultry.
One of the World’s Largest Bookstores
For the book lover in your life, nothing is better than a visit to one of the world’s biggest bookstores. John K. King Used & Rare Books, which runs out of an old glove manufacturing center, holds more than one million books. You’ll love wandering through the many rows of hard-to-find titles, some of which are so rare that they require an appointment to be seen.
The Fox Theatre
If there’s one place you’d want to go in a limo, it would be an old-time movie theatre. The Fox Theatre is one of the last surviving 1920s movie theatres. With more than 5000 seats, it still hosts a range of live events such as stand-up comedy, concerts, and children’s sing-alongs.
The Fox Theatre is one of the National Park Service’s National Historic Landmarks, and it is open for public tours if you can’t catch one of its memorable performances during your visit to Detroit. The interior of the theatre is a sight to see, and it’s sure to be one of the most memorable parts of your trip.
The Guardian Building
Though Detroit is home to many architectural marvels, the Guardian Building is one of the most notable. This 36-floor building is in the city’s Financial District, and it, like the Fox Theatre, is a National Historic Landmark. The Detroit Experience Factory offers some walking tours, including one of the Guardian Building, if you’d like to step out of your limo and see the sights on foot.
Photo Opportunities at the Belt
The Belt is named for its location in Detroit’s former garment district. Public art and cultural redefinition are the focus behind the area’s redevelopment, and when you take luxury transportation through the area, you’ll see installations and murals by international, national, and local artists. The Belt is part of the Library Street Collective’s efforts to give artists a creative space where they can interact with the public.
The Motown Museum
Motown Records is a Detroit-based soul and R&B record label that advanced the racial integration of music in the tumultuous times of the 1960s and 1970s. Musical acts such as the Supremes, the Four Tops, the Temptations, and many more were on the label.
Motown Records’ main office, known as Hitsville, USA, was converted into a museum in 1985, with the goal of highlighting Motown’s contributions to American music. Here, you’ll find all kinds of costumes, awards, and records from the world’s most famous musicians, and you can also see one of the studios where the label’s memorable hits were made.
The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation
Henry Ford was a Michigan native who founded the Ford Motor Company, which kick-started the country’s automobile manufacturing industry. After taking a relaxing ride in one of our limousines or party buses, you can tour the museum to learn how the automobile evolved from a curiosity to one of the most important parts of society. In the museum, you’ll see several cars, as well as exhibits on power generation, trains, and much more.
The Museum of African American History
Since 1965, the Museum of African American History has held one of the world’s biggest collections of African American cultural artifacts. There are more than 35,000 pieces highlighting the culture and history of African American people, including exhibits on art, film, civil rights, and more.
