Get the official "welcome" to downtown Detroit

Whether you're looking to book a tour of Detroit, or just hoping to find a new bar downtown (we do our best to cover them here, but I'm sure we've missed a few), check out the Inside Detroit Welcome Center.

Both in their storefront location on Woodward and online at www.insidedetroit.org, you'll find all kinds of info on stuff happening downtown, like upcoming theater performances, concerts, festivals, bar crawls, you name it.

The non-profit group has set up shop at 1253 Woodward, not far from the Compuware headquarters. Their window dressings alone – which offer up factoids about the city – are worth a quick look. For instance, did you there are 125 bars and restaurants in downtown Detroit?

The Welcome Center is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday throughout the summer. It's closed on Mondays through the winter. The website is always open.
