Detroit Is Beautiful

Over the last couple of months of exploring my new host city, I’ve heard the negative comments, from those in the suburbs, as well as those back home. From people who have never been to Detroit, and those who hate it for one reason or the other. What I’ve found is, people just want to have something to say. And I’m glad I don’t listen. We have traveled around and I have taken many flicks of all the beauty Detroit has to offer. This is me, celebrating the positive of beautiful Detroit, MI. [95 % of the pics I took myself, can you guess which ones aren’t mine?]


Lets get on the 94 and explore…






Woodward avenue (M-1) is a main thoroughfare with a lot of historical buildings to look at. Excuse the construction. They are building a light rail. And this is where your Detroit teams play. [Pistons coming soon]

I’m sure many of you watched Martin growing up. This was the building it “took place” in. 2900 Jefferson ave.

    1. Never let anyones opinions (especially if negative) dictate your decisions. I would get the same responses, even when I moved here. A lot of times in life we have to experience things for ourselves. I realized most people who complain about Detroit have never been here!
