Detroit, Michigan

Detroit, Michigan, the Motor City, may have major ties to the auto industry and is home to great sports, but it also welcomes plenty of outdoor recreation to keep residents fit and healthy. Not only that, but as the birthplace of Motown records, it’s a city that is all about music and getting your groove on. Considered by many as a city on the rise, there is history at every corner and beautiful architecture to catch your eye as you explore the city. 

Residents can spend their time dancing the night away, or they can take advantage of the beautiful parks and the beauty of living on the river. During the warmer months, residents enjoy strolls along the river that overlooks Canada. When temperatures hit below freezing, residents enjoy getting their exercise in at skating rinks at places like the gorgeous outdoor Frankenmuth Rink at Campus Martius Park. 

Detroit residents are interested in a range of health and wellness activities, ranging from holistic wellness therapy to yoga and meditation.
