Metro Detroit is getting all decked out for the holidays – and there couldn’t be a better time to visit.
Starting with the U.S. Thanksgiving next Thursday and then less than a month until Christmas, this “come-back” metropolis is thriving.
It’s “Go Time Detroit” as Thrillist, the online travel website, named it “one of America’s most fun cities.”

Starting downtown, some attractions are the Thanksgiving Day parade, “pop-up” Christmas stores, decorated trees, special shows at the Fisher and Fox theatres and Noel Night in the Cultural Center.
In the metro area, there’s Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village, lavish decorations at the Dearborn Inn and historic ones at auto baron homes.
They’ve kicked off the season with the lighting of a huge Norwegian spruce wrapped in 19,000 multi-colored lights and ornaments at Campus Martius Park.
