Detroit is topping travel lists around the world as a must-see destination, so why not be a hometown tourist? Our friends at the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau were here today with a very special event to help you get started.
Discover the D Hometown Tourist Day will be showcasing Detroit's finest attractions such as hotels, restaurants, attractions, and museums. Over 50 Detroit businesses will be at the event.
Deanna Majchrzak brought by the D Rover, which is the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau mobile visitor center. The rover can be seen around town, handing out information about activities all throughout metro Detroit. Majchrzak also brought a few people from Detroit's tourist stops such as bike shop Wheel House Detroit, the Good Cakes and Bakes bakery, and outdoor aerial park Tree Runner Adventure Parks at West Bloomfield.
