Weekend Get-a-way: The Motor City 

Stay

Foundation Hotel

MGM Grand

Eat

Green Dot Stables- Fun, classic spot.  All small plates, literally.

Late night at Cafe d'Mongo's- Speakeasy vibes with stellar cocktails.

Drinks at Parc- Centrally located so great place to start the night with drinks or stay for dinner.  Romantic setting. Perfect for date night

Wright & Co- Come for dinner. Sit at the bar and try everything.

Mudgie's Deli- Great spot to hit up for lunch while exploring Cork Town

Some might say a trip is not complete without a Coney Island dog, however I far prefer the character and eats in Greektown

 

Explore

DIA- One of my all time favorite museums.  Great collection.  Prepare to be awe struck by the Diego Rivera mural 

Eastern Market

Motown Museum

Belle Island

Corktown

In the know

Rent a car -- you are in the motor city after all.  Not much of a walking city, plus this will allow you to see more

The People Mover does an elevated loop around the city center.  Easy to go around downtown, or great for a little sightseeing
