Detroit is a city unlike anywhere else in the United States. It is the birthplace of Motown and techno music, its expansive history with automobiles gives it the nickname “Motor City”, and you can actually see Canada (and quickly visit when the border is open) from downtown Detroit. These are just a few of the things that make Detroit, Michigan an incredible destination. I was able to visit the city for the first time recently and check out some of the best wheelchair accessible Detroit sights and attractions.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect before visiting, but Detroit blew me away. I had so much fun and discovered that there are just too many accessible attractions to see in only a few days, so I’m already dreaming about returning to Motor City. While I couldn’t visit every accessible attraction, I did try my best to see as much as possible.
Over the course of a few action-packed and incredibly fun days, I enjoyed the outdoors, went to a baseball game, rolled back in time to the mid-1800s, shopped till I dropped at a huge farmer’s market, and so much more. I can now say that Detroit is one of my favorite cities in the U.S. and it is wheelchair-friendly, making it a great place to consider for an accessible vacation.
