Michigan has been the birthplace of a multitude of cultural movements; from Motown in the 50s and 60s to Iggy Pop punk in the 70s and 80s to White Stripes indie-rock and Eminem representing the best of today’s hip-hop (both underground and mainstream). And while KISS is not from Detroit, their beloved rock anthem “Detroit Rock City” helps to convey the good times and free spirits found in our great city. Detroit’s even home to some of the founding DJs of the rave and house scene, featured every summer at the free Detroit Electronic Music Festival (showcased in Hart Plaza, downtown Detroit). Downtown, the Wayne State and Greek Town neighborhoods provide a wide variety of late-night offerings. The area around Comerica Park is always chocked full of events at the State Theatre, Fox Theatre and Hockeytown Cafe.

You can also check out Detroit's renowned museum: Detroit Institute of the Arts, featuring a diverse collection of American, European, Modern and Contemporary, African, Asian, Native American, Oceanic, Islamic and Ancient art. All this culture is also just a ride across the bridge away to Windsor, Canada—Detroit’s fabulous sister city. Lastly, Michigan has embraced its local brewery scene like no other, taking artisan lagers and ales to a new level in quality. Brewers like Bell’s, Old Hat and Arbor Brewing Company are cleaning up on awards at national brewing festivals. Every year, these local houses gather at the Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti to put forth their best brews for the consideration of a discerning Michigan community.
