Detroit, the largest city in Michigan, is situated in the southeast part of the state on the Detroit River. It is one of the largest manufacturing cities in the U.S. and is the centre of the automobile manufacturing industry. Detroit's diverse culture has had both local and international influence, particularly in music, with the city giving rise to the genres of Motown and techno, and playing an important role in the development of jazz, hip-hop, rock, and punk. In 2015, Detroit was named a "City of Design" by UNESCO, the first U.S. city to receive that designation. Don’t overthink about finding suitable student accommodation in such a city though. Just contact Casita, and our accommodation experts will fix you up with the room that suits you the best.

Its neighbourhoods are made up of tight-knit, friendly communities, and a sense of camaraderie makes the big city feel like home.

Must-Visit Places in Detroit

Downtown Detroit sits at the water's edge and is packed with things to do, as well as restaurants, shops, and interesting neighbourhoods like Greektown. The Dearborn Neighborhood is a top place to visit for sightseeing and is best known for its association with automotive legend Henry Ford with The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant and The Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village. It is also home to several ethnic neighbourhoods, including an Arab-American area that has excellent Middle Eastern dining options. The suburban Oakland district is home to the Detroit Zoo and is also known for its upscale cafés and shops. Outlying neighbourhoods include Detroit's "Eastside" of Macomb, known for its marinas, and the trendy Greater Noni neighbourhood, with its golf courses and recreational facilities. Other amazing places to visit include The Detroit Institute of Arts, Motown Museum, and Detroit Historical Museum.

Transportation in Detroit

Detroit lives up to its Motor City moniker with wide boulevards and multiple connecting freeways. But this isn’t just a car city. The Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT), which consists of 48 routes, is used by locals to get to work, enjoy sports entertainment in downtown Detroit, or have a safe night out. 

Detroit also has a bike-share system named MoGo. It was launched in 2017 and now has 75 stations. It is a pre-paid pass that costs $18 for two hours of riding, or $20 for a month.

Like any major U.S. city, Uber and Lyft have a presence in Detroit, servicing urban neighbourhoods, the suburbs, and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. You will also find many taxis throughout Detroit.
