Known by most for its flailing auto industry, increasing crime rate, and distinctively angsty rappers, Detroit isn't exactly a dream destination. But, in recent years the city has seen a huge amount of artists and entrepreneurs move in, taking advantage of a space that's largely filled with low-cost housing and empty factory buildings. And as a result, Detroit is slowly becoming the Comeback City.
Massive efforts are underway to revitalize housing conditions, while organizations like Hantz Farms are working to bring more greenery to the area. Hantz Woodlands, on the city's east side, is a 140-acre urban tree farm (the largest in the U.S.) that aims to raze abandoned homes, clean up the area, and plant thousands of trees.
While staying here, stick to more central areas like Downtown, Midtown, and New Center - the outskirts of the city are much more prone to crime. As the birthplace of Motown, there's no shortage of music and theater venues here. And on Saturdays, everyone flocks to the famous Eastern Market - the largest open-air flower market in the U.S. Plus in the Downtown area, you'll have your pick of both upscale and affordable restaurants, luxury and eclectic boutiques, and tons of galleries - all thanks to a younger generation that's creating what the media has dubbed the "new Detroit."
