Keri Jones visits the city famous for Motown music and the motorcar! He visits Hitsville USA – the Motown museum and the Ford Auto Plant, which is open for tours. During his trip Keri also discovers Detroit’s local take on ten-pin bowling. It’s good fun and rather different.

Detroit is bouncing back from severe economic and social problems that have seen hundreds-of-thousands of residents leave the city. It’s become a hip, forward-thinking city with a downtown free of the chain stores. Instead, you’ll find unique and locally owned businesses, as Keri discovered.

The architecture is incredible, too. The city skyline is dotted with art-deco skyscrapers, visible remainders of the city’s former wealth. Detroit’s buildings are so magnificent that the city earned the nickname, ‘The Paris Of The Midwest’.
