MICHIGAN IS A VERY GOOD STATE IN THE GREAT LAKES. IN THIS CITY HAS A POPULATION OF ABOUT 10 MILLION.

YOU'VE BEEN ON A MICHIGAN FALL COLORS TOUR OR TAKEN A DRIVE THROUGH THE COUNTRY IN THE FALL JUST TO SEE THE LEAVES CHANGING.

I an 63 years old and grew up in detroit in the 1950s and 1960s. i no longer live there but have visited it several times in recent years.

Favorite places! The Detroit Institue of Art--too much time spent there is never enough. Plenty of art of all varieties to look at. Beautiful, provocative, awe-inspiring. Princess Cruises- will take you on a ride up and down the Detroit River on both the Detroit side and the Canadian side. Scenic and restful. Motown Museum-or as Paul McCartney put it "the Holy Grail". must see for all music fans. Any sports venue-Detroiters are enthusiastic sports fans and that makes for a lot of fun. The same for music concerts. Have seen McCartney and Eminem and Jay-Z-there-the crowd is entertaining as the show What has always been a downside-problematic school system and poverty. Like to feel Detroit is on its way back but a lot of improvement needed in these areas.

The crime rate is being reduced. I love that it's up and coming. More money is being put into the city which is bringing it back to how lively it used to be, especially downtown.

The coney island are great! They are every where and I love the music that comes from the city.

A new statue unveiled by the Satanic Temple in Detroit. When I was driving around Detroit and I saw this horrible statue there, I was like what's going on with this legislators and the government that allowed a thing like that. I hate it a lot and left town that day.

The satan statue is a disgusting thing that is there in Detroit. The statue is backed by an inverted pentagram and flanked by statues of two young children gazing up at the creature, which has horns, hooves, wings and a beard.

The crime rate is high although not as bad as it was some years ago.

the midtown area is vibrant and growing with new businesses and lofts and shops and restaurants opening.

Despite the downfalls the city has/is facing it is still a place full of culture and history. I LOVE the fact that they are so sports orientated. I grew up being a huge fan of sports and there is no bigger sports town than Detroit. Redwings, Pistons, Tigers and Lions are all supported with large amounts of pride!

Joe Louis Arena, Comerica Park, the new football and hockey arenas. The hockeytown cafe(yum!) all the casinos and the theater. There is so much history and so much pride in the historical places still!

The crime is horrible there. The schools are some of the worst I have ever seen. Everything is run down there because the people do not take care of themselves or the places around them. It's like a 3 world country!

There's nothing there I would say is good. It's all bad. I feel like that place should be completely bulldozed and rebuilt.
