TRAVEL: Detroit Rock City

Road trip to the motor city.

Five of us piled into a Honda Civic to go explore Detroit, Michigan for a long weekend in August. I would have never thought of making this trip until recently, but all the sudden I had Detroit on my mind. So we went to explore the birthplace of Motown, the Tigers and coney island dogs. It was so worth the four hour drive and in fact we can’t wait to get back there to explore some more.

Just a few quick hits from the highlight reel in chronological order: Slows Bar BQ; Eldorado General Store; Astro Coffee; Detroit Train Station; Comerica Park for a Tigers game and coney dogs; DIA Detroit Institute of Arts; Café D’Mongos Speakeasy is a Detroit landmark and the third generation owner is the first to operate with a license (absolute MUST go experience this place!); Lafayette Coney Island for the best diner experience after the watering hole for coney dogs and chilli fries; Eastern Market on Saturdays; Detroit City Distillery a local small batch distillery started by three friends with gorgeous label design (I’m not a scotch drinker, but I can appreciate the packaging); and The Heidelberg Project started in 1986 as an open-air art experience by local Tyree Guyton who strives to draw attention to Detroit’s long forgotten east side.
