Detroit is the largest city in the midwestern state of Michigan. Near Downtown, the neoclassical Detroit Institute of Arts is famed for the Detroit Industry Murals painted by Diego Rivera, and inspired by the city’s ties to the auto industry, giving it the nickname “Motor City.” Detroit is also the birthplace of Motown Records, whose chart-topping history is on display at their original headquarters, Hitsville U.S.A. ― Google

Traverse City serves up the best of two worlds: it offers the mesmerizing outdoor recreational opportunities as well as tremendous cultural and social opportunities often only found in much larger cities. Traverse City is truly a micropolis – offering residents and visitors the small Midwestern town charm along with cosmopolitan options. Daily flights to Chicago, Detroit and Minneapolis are only moments away.
