Talk about a fading destination. Detroit is probably not on many travelers itinerary. I may be one of the few who actually enjoyed Motor City visits (Buffalo, too), admittedly some years ago. I had a business associate who was a native, so when downtown closed after 5 pm (it did and was desolate), he knew where to go; otherwise, I would not have left the sanctuary of my hotel. The future of Detroit was foretold, even thirty years ago, with the trip downtown from the airport the city-scape was heartbreaking.
