"Can't forget the Motor City"
 
My wife and I made a first time visit to Detroit this last weekend. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Here are some photos from our trip. I hope you enjoy. :cheers:

Great photos! Best photo thread of Detroit I've seen here yet!

edale Aug 15, 2019 5:30 PM

Great set! It's wonderful to see Downtown Detroit looking healthy and cleaned up!

dc_denizen Aug 15, 2019 7:44 PM

Great set!

Fantastic photography of a great city.

OhioGuy Aug 15, 2019 10:02 PM

Nice photos! I'm disappointed I haven't made it there this year. I had planned on going last January, but had to cancel due to the government shut down. Then I planned on taking my dad for his birthday to a Tigers game in July, but we ended up backing out on buying tickets that weekend because heat indices were well over 100 and no one in my family had any interest in sitting outside in that weather. Schedule is too packed this fall... so maybe I'll make it there next year. As your photos show, there's plenty to check out!

That's a real nice set.:tup:

wow!beautiful photos.

I was in a little Canadian town across the river to Detroit in winter 2017 (just say Windsor what a jerk I am - pretending not knowing the name since it took me over 6 snowy hours on bus from Toronto to WINDSOR bus terminal) in order to watch Detroit where I was always yearning for since young.

And I was soothed to see the city lights in Detroit and the elevators going up and down at Renaissance Center almost all night long.

Nice pictures!

I've heard of that Grand Trunk Pub. It was a ticket office for the Grand Trunk Railway. Harry Houdini apparently worked in a magic shop down in the basement.

ChrisLA Aug 16, 2019 6:14 AM

Nice, I want to visit Detroit one of these days.

Evo5Boise Aug 16, 2019 12:22 PM

That was an awesome set of pictures! I spent some time in Detroit quite a few years ago and I actually really liked the city. Glad to see it rebounding.

So much soul.

Last I was in Detroit the QLine was just about finished and I was pretty pumped about the possibilities.

Is the QLine a success?

Beautiful photos of a beautiful city. Looks like you made your rounds.

Wanted to get back home to MI this year with my new baby, but then the measles thing happened and couldn't do it. Looking forward to it next year. Thanks for the photos.

Terrific photos. Can't forget the Motor City, indeed!

Little A Aug 19, 2019 2:17 PM

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you enjoyed the thread.

I only rode on it twice but both times it was very full. I'm thinking it is.

That's crazy, M. Brown! This was taken roughly between 1:30 to 3:00 P.M. on Saturday, August 10th. We checked out the fountain afterwards and then continued to make our way downtown. Belle Isle is beautiful!
