Days in Detroit

Detroit is where Motown was founded and developed.  The  Motown Museum is a touching tribute to history

National Geographic Traveler wrote a Cover Story about Detroit - I'm such a trendsetter!

My dear friend Paula lives in Detroit so I have visited more than half a dozen times in the last 10 years.  Paula is a real advocate for Detroit and has showed me every nook and cranny.  So you can imagine that it was very exciting to see Detroit on the cover of National Geographic Travel (March/April 2012) and know that I have been to every place he mentions and even eaten at Good Girls Go to Paris Crepes founded by Torya Blanchard, Paula's friend who is featured in the article as a young entrepreneur bringing new life to downtown.

Read this article and hear the bright, beaming side of Detroit where history, architecture, cars, public art, music, from Motown to 8 Mile, culture and new possibilities are brimming all over.
