Detroit. Dying city.

Founded in 1701 by French fur traders, Detroit is a major port city, located north of Windsor, Ontario, on the Detroit River in the Midwest region of the United States. It is known as the world’s traditional automotive center and an important source of popular-music legacies, celebrated by the city’s two familiar nicknames, Motor City and Motown. The city’s name comes from the Detroit River (in French Rivière du Détroit), meaning « River of the Strait. » The name alludes to the connection the river forms between Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie.

In 2005, Detroit ranked as the United States’ 11th most populous city, with 886,675 residents; this number is less than half the peak population in 1950, and Detroit is among the leaders in the nation in terms of declining urban population over the past fifty years. It is the focal city of the nation’s tenth-largest metropolitan area.

Detroit’s crime rate has brought it notoriety, while the city continues to struggle with the burdens of racial disharmony between itself and its suburban neighbours. The city has experienced budget shortfalls, leading to cuts in city services. Nevertheless, Detroit is currently experiencing a downtown revival with the construction of the Compuware headquarters, a recently renovated Renaissance Center, three gambling casinos, new stadiums and the Detroit Riverwalk. The city serves as an entertainment hub for the metropolitan region.

Make a tour? Yeah!
