It may be called The Motor City, but Detroit has more to offer than cars! It's home to the legendary Motown sound, boasts world-class museums and galleries and plays host to several professional sports franchises.

With a climate that's largely influenced by the Great Lakes, Detroit winters include freezing temperatures and snowfall from November through April.
