Detroit is an important city for the automotive industry and is the birthplace of a very well-known type of black music: Motown.
Detroit is a city in Michigan on the Detroit River, with a population of over 1 million. The city is one of the seven biggest cities in the United States and is a very important commercial and automobile manufacturing centre. Detroit has a science museum, a planetarium, a number of theatres and an enormous zoo.
Detroit was substantially rebuilt after the big fire of 1805. Examples of modern architecture are the Renaissance Center, the Civic Center and the Cultural Center. The Motown Museum is certainly worth a visit.
