The word “rebirth” often comes up when people talk about Detroit these days, and for good reason: after a highly-publicized (and sometimes overstated) economic decline in the late 20th century, the Motor City has found its footing once again. Historically one of the economic and cultural powerhouses of the Midwest, the city is full of people who are taking an active role in restoring their community to its former glory—this has attracted scores of new residents with a can-do attitude and a passion for community involvement. The cost of living is quite low, and rental rates for apartments, condos, and houses are highly attractive for any budget.

Monuments to Detroit’s rich history surround you wherever you go, particularly the truly astonishing architecture and public artwork throughout the city. Detroit’s long tradition of producing legendary musicians has continued in earnest, and it’s easy to find live performances representing every genre. It’s a terrific environment for sports fans too, being one of the few American cities to be represented in big league football, baseball, basketball, and hockey. Ask any local and they’ll tell you that Detroit is still a great city… and they’re ready to prove it.

Apartment living and dining out will be perfect complements in Detroit. Detroit is home to a diverse population and there are fabulous restaurants that cater to all kinds of tastes and preferences. Would you expect any less from a big city with big plans and a new attitude?

The Southwest Side of Detroit is home to many ethnic neighborhoods such as Mexicantown and Corktown. This is where you go for authentic and seriously tasty ethnic cuisine. What other good food can you expect in Detroit? Detroit Style Pizza is a local favorite featuring crust-heavy square pizzas that rival Italy’s Sfinciuni style. Detroit is also the birthplace of the slider. White Castle may have made it popular nationwide, but Detroit folks like Geneva's Hamburgers, Travis Burger and White Top for theirs. Another great local fave is the Coney dog. I think you will soon agree that Detroit has perfected the Coney. Try stopping by Lafayette Coney Island or pick up a world famous Hani from National Coney and see if you don’t agree.
