Detroit enjoys a rich history, having forged the American landscape with sexy muscle cars and the toe-tapping rhythms of Motown. But there’s more to love about Detroit than merely its history.

You’ll find in these pages a Detroit brimming with renewed energy, where young chefs innovate with urban farmgrown food and where manufacturing know-how crafts trendy Shinola watches.

And since oldies really can be goodies, we’ve also included classic sights like the Ford Rouge Factory Tour and the Motown Museum. Whether you’ve lived in Detroit all your life and want to dig deeper or you’re a traveler eager to discover the city for the first time, 100 Things to Do in Detroit Before You Die will help you create—and complete—your very own Motor City bucket list.
