Detroit Weekend Guide

Detroit Weekend Guide

Detroit is not just Motown and the auto industry. Scratch the surface, and you’ll find a city that, despite taking some heavy hits, just can’t be kept down. Innovation and renovation, being proud of the past and excited for the future, taking chances and making changes, and having a love for three home teams – all that and more lies at the heart of this city’s comeback.

Getting to there is a breeze. As home to Detroit Metro Airport, flying in means you’re landing in one of two main terminals, and are able to use shuttles and extra-wide moving walkways to get from the plane to baggage. You can choose between being picked up by family and friends, or travel to your destination by bus, limo, taxi, or shuttle.  In the city proper, there are light-rail/streetcar systems, trains, and bike share/rental services, too. The only thing you have to do is go wherever your heart takes you.

Things to do

Downtown is bike-friendly and pedestrian friendly, and you won’t have any trouble finding your needs fulfilled during your stay. The choice is truly yours – from historical sights to family destinations, honorary colleges like Wayne State to the best medical care at Detroit Medical Center, to delicious food and the hottest clubs – you’ll find it all in this bustling city.

Take your shot with The Red Wings or at the NCAA March Madness Tournament at Little Caesars Arena, or roar like a Tiger opening day at Comerica Park. Discover the science behind Pixar at the interactive exhibit at The Henry Ford, or if you feel Lady Luck is on your side, take a gamble at MotorCity, Greektown, or MGM Grand casinos. Take a cruise along the Detroit Riverfront, take a stroll in the butterfly gardens of Gabriel Richard Park, and satisfy your taste buds at Greenwich Time Pub, Central Kitchen & Bar, or Woodward Coney Island. In Detroit, the choices are endless.

Maverick Apartment Community Highlight

It’s about the games at Target Fields and the long walks along the riverfront. It’s enjoying social events and finding the perfect produce at Whole Foods. It’s the staples, like the amazing food at Spoon and Stable, a nightcap at Monte Carlo or Marvel Bar, and finding the perfect gift at Askov Finlayson. In the North Loop, it’s truly all about you.

The amazing location is just one of many reasons why Maverick is the perfect apartment community for short-term housing needs.
