Fodor's 5 reasons to "go to Detroit right now"

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

Shoutout to the "D!" Fodor's, a popular travel blog, lists five reasons tourists should take a trip to Detroit.

The Art

Fodor's highlights the impressive art scene here in Detroit, recommending the DIA, the Heidelberg Project, and the "Iron Teaching Rocks How to Rust" installation outside MBAD's African Bead Museum.

The Music

Music fans unite! Motown lovers or not, Detroit has musical history like no other city. Fodor's recommends, naturally, The Motown Museum and Bakers, the world's oldest jazz club.

The History

Detroit offers a wide range of museums. Fodor's recommends the Detroit Historical Museum, Dossin Great Lakes Museum, the Henry Ford Museum, and Greenfield Village.

The Sports

Detroiters sure do love our Lions, Tigers, Wings, and Pistons - and our spirit is showing. The article's writer also checked out a lesser-known sport in Detroit, feather bowling, at the Cadieux Cafe.

The Food

Going beyond the obvious Coney Dog, Detroit has so much more to offer your palette. (Hint: Think Mexicantown, Greektown, etc.) Specific restaurants Fodor's calls out are Green Dot Stables, Jacoby's, Supinos Pizzeria, The Whitney, Roma Cafe, Roasting Plant, Astro Coffee, Sugar House, and Slow's BarBQ. And, of course, if you're feeling like cooking up a meal of your own, visit Eastern Market.
