Detroit is a city we really looked forward to visiting even though everyone we know told us it was unsavory. Well, we’re happy to report that Detroit is a great place to visit. They have beautiful new restaurants, art installations everywhere, historic buildings, nice hotels, and friendly people everywhere.

Our first stop after checking into our suite at the Doubletree was dinner at Lumen. This place is months new and had an amazing menu with affordable prices. We shared a plates including some mussels in white wine sauce and frites with beer cheese aioli!

Lumen was beautifully designed and the staff were super friendly.

Everywhere we walked there were random art installations, even on the side of a parking structure.

In an allyway, more art! 

Crazy blue light art

The next day we downloaded the Bird app and rented a couple electric scooters to explore the city.
