Detroit : Michelin's recommendations
The industrial city of Detroit anchors a massive metropolitan area of nearly 4 million residents spread over more than 6,000 square miles. The city boomed in the early 20C with the advent of assembly-line production, which made possible the mass-production of cars and later, supplies and and materials for World War II. Revitalization efforts in the city center have brought professional sports stadiums, restored historic structures and riverfront casinos here, alongside fine art and history museums and several well-regarded performing arts organizations.
