What is your best overall travel tip for Detroit?

Absolutely go to Supino Pizzeria near the Eastern Market. Huge, thin crust slices you have to fold in half to eat, with the hot, stringy cheese melted to perfection. If you're interested in trying Detroit-style pizza, check out Luigi's Original or Cloverleaf. If you are in the downtown area, visit the top floor of a central parkade - sounds odd, but trust me! Parking lot "Z" has amazing urban street art on every floor, and the tenth floor is open to see the beautiful city laid out all around you. Spot the iconic Fox Theatre, Ford Field, shopping strips down Wyandotte Street or "the belt" alley, and of course more street art on buildings in the distance. We stayed in the East Village part of the city and had breakfast at Sister Pie, and highly recommend it! The cafe was so quaint and community-focused, and their amazing baked goods were a great way to start the day. Stop in before you head across the river to Belle Isle for a lovely day trip. Detroit loves music and hosts so many festivals! Be sure to research which festivals may be going on before you travel so you can be sure to stop by (or avoid planning to park in the area that day).
