Visiting Detroit

Throughout the winter months in Detroit you’ll find an impressive slate of things to see and do. The Detroit metro area is the place to be in late 2016 and early 2017, with a wide range of excellent events, festivals, and more planned – you’ll discover just how easy it is to make the most of a visit to the Motor City.

As you plan your exploration through Detroit, be sure to include some time spent at these premier attractions. Don’t miss the Bagley Memorial Fountain, the MotorCities National Heritage Area yields a full afternoon of fun, and the Wayne State University campus is an ideal destination for those shopping around for college options.

Nearby suburbs like Livonia, Woodhaven, and Allen Park yield quick and easy access to downtown Detroit – football fans make the trip often during the fall. Check out Ford Field when you visit Detroit this fall and catch the Detroit Lions in action. On November 24th the Minnesota Vikings will be in town for a showdown, and the Lions finish off their 2016 campaign at home against the Green Bay Packers on January 1st.

Joe Louis Arena is another staple of downtown Detroit, and one hockey fans know well. Be sure to catch an exciting Detroit Red Wings game while you’re visiting. On December 27th the Red Wings welcome the Buffalo Sabres to town for a fierce matchup. In early 2017 they host the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 14th, the St. Louis Blues on February 15th, and the New York Islanders on February 21st.

“The Joe” is also hosting some premier live events in late 2016. On December 20th WWE’s Smackdown Live will be in Detroit at 7 p.m., and on December 22nd to 25th you can catch a live performance from Cirque du Soleil OVO. Comedy fans are sure to know the name Jeff Dunham. Head for The Joe on January 28th to see this multi-talented comedian and ventriloquist take the stage at 7 p.m.

For an evening celebrating the fine arts, make your way to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall on November 17th, 18th, or 19th. You’ll have a chance to see Tchaikovsky’s First Concerto as performed by internationally renowned pianist Kirill Gerstein.

You’ll have an excellent New Year’s Eve this year in Detroit. Be sure to check out the Meridian Motor City NYE Drop 2017. Held at Cadillac Square in downtown Detroit, this event features two stages (Main and Tent) a kid’s zone, food vendors, carriage rides, and even fire jugglers.
