The Motor City
Detroit: The City That Drives The World ... Known as the Motor City or Motown, the Detroit metropolitan area is home to more than 6 million people, several prominent universities, some of the most successful manufacturing and service companies in the world and a variety of professional sports teams. One of America's ten largest cities, Detroit has historically been a leader in manufacturing, mechanical innovation, education and international business.
The addition of two new stadiums, housing the National Football League's Lions and Major League Baseball's Tigers, has made downtown the place to be for football, baseball, hockey, and basketball fans. In 2009, the city played host to the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four championship tournament. All of this in a cosmopolitan cultural setting, accompanied by the natural beauty of Michigan and its more than 11,000 lakes.
Founded in 1701 by the French explorer Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, Detroit is now home to more than 800,000 people from around the globe. This cultural diversity is celebrated in the venerable Detroit Institute of Arts, the Wright Museum of African American History, the Museum of Contemporary Art - Detroit; and in ethnic neighborhoods like Greektown, Mexicantown, and Hamtramck. Detroit is a gateway city -- the splendor of Canada is just minutes away across the Detroit River. Detroit is also a sophisticated city with fine dining throughout the city and metropolitan region, clubs, bars, vibrant jazz and blues venues, theater, opera and one of the world’s most celebrated symphony orchestras.
Greater Detroit's metropolitan area offers a wide range of attractions. From enjoying the nightlife in the nearby towns of Royal Oak and Birmingham in Oakland County (see Oakland County page under the "Career" section of the web site), experiencing a University of Michigan football game in Ann Arbor's "Big House," touring the historic estates of the automotive pioneers, and boating on Lake St. Clair, Detroit has something for everyone.
As we like to say -- "It's a great time in Detroit."
