Visiting Detroit | Late Summer/Early Fall 2014
Sports fans in the Detroit area have enjoyed an exciting summer. Their very own Detroit Tigers have been absolutely dominant all season long, and now, as the season draws to its climactic close, the Tigers look to finish strong as they fight for first place in the American League Central. The Tigers defend the field at Comerica Park at home games now through September 28th, when they cap off a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins.
Still, sports fans are arguably even more pumped up for the returning NFL season and a chance to see the action up close at Detroit Lions home games at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. After going to battle against the New York Giants in the regular season opener on September 8th, the Lions continue to host the fiercest teams in the NFL through December 14th, when they play their last home game against the Vikings.
Music fans have a lot to look forward to this season in the Detroit area. Chill on the Hill 2014 kicks things off, with headliners the Offspring and Rise Against rocking Freedom Hill in Sterling Heights on September 6th and 7th. The Black Keys bring their blues-inspired rock to Joe Louis Arena in downtown Detroit on September 12th before Motley Crue stop the Final Tour at the same venue on November 8th – just a couple days after Jason Mraz brings his sweet-as-sugar pop songs to the Fox Theatre on November 6th.
Detroit has enjoyed a rich, multifaceted cultural history throughout the years and getting a sense of it is a must for any visitor. Stop by downtown’s Detroit Institute of Art to become immersed in one of the best art collections in the country, check out the architectural spectacle that is the Guardian Building, or spend an evening with the Detroit Symphony. Of course, a visit to the Motown Historical Museum is not to be missed, either. The modest-looking building was the headquarters of Motown Records and Tamla Records during the salad days of legends like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, the Supremes, and the Temptations.
On October 24th and 25th, more than 60 craft beer brewers from all over Michigan gather at Eastern Market for the 2014 Detroit Fall Beer Festival. Hosted by the Michigan Brewers Guild, the celebration is entering it’s sixth year, inviting hops lovers to sample from a variety of 450 craft beers while enjoying live performances from local musicians.
