There’s Romance in Detroit

Funded by French explorers, this vibrant city, whose name means ‘strait’ in the language of diplomacy, is home to people with typical Midwestern friendliness and flair, that likes to make its mark. Try your hand at fowling, the local sport, while you’re here. It’s a combination of bowling and football, whereby the bowling pins need to be knocked down using a football.

The Guardian Building, the Fox Theater, the David Whitney Building and the Ste. Anne de Detroit church are the city’s greatest architectural jewels. The Charles H.
