Detroit is a city that’s gone through a renaissance. Hulking, concrete buildings that were once home to giant motor corporations are now the site of graffiti battles, providing a street art circuit that you can tour by bike. But among this post-industrial landscape, there are glimmers of sumptuous beauty, such as the Fox Theater, where you can enjoy ovation-worthy performances beneath the gilded, domed ceiling.
