In 2017 I was on my way to Winnipeg to visit friends and watch some hockey games of my beloved Jets. Since the Detroit Red Wings played their last season in the aging Joe Louis Arena this year, I wanted to take the opportunity to make another trip to Detroit.
From Toronto, where I had to make a stopover anyway, it is only a short drive to Detroit. So I grabbed a rental car and set off.
I used the time until the game to have a look at the city. A drive over the 8 Mile and a visit at Hardcore Pawn were also part of my little roadtrip. There was even a photo with Less Gold in it.
Afterwards I went all over the city and the outlying districts. On this occasion I also found some nice and special pieces.
But the most impressive and saddest were the old dilapidated factories. I would have loved to explore the buildings a little bit. But I couldn’t do that quickly, also because the ruins are still guarded.
The conclusion of my Detroit trip is that Detroit is definitely worth a trip. Especially since the city is clearly on the way to a better future. The development will be exciting.There are plenty of walls waiting for a new coat of paint.
