Detroit is not particularly a tourist destination. But neither are some of our most successful Hack Your City choices, like Pittsburgh or Minneapolis-St. Paul. This is a Hack Your City for the locals, and for anyone else who's found themselves in this city on a business trip or layover. It's not exactly glory days for Detroit, but there are over 3 million people in the area-they definitely have something to do.
Each Monday on Hack Your City, we ask readers for your best tips on a city: driving tips, restaurant recs, things to do, and any other advice for visitors and locals. Then on Thursday, we present the best comments. We're working our way around the U.S. and around the globe.
So Detroiters, what's good in town? What's getting better, or what gets a bad rap? What's bad and how do you deal with it? And what would you say to someone who sneers, "Never go to Detroit?"
