Grand skyscrapers, municipal facilities and the city's banking industry are all located in this historic neighborhood. Head here for taste adventures at local eateries, upscale shopping and partying at clubs. Hart Plaza is the place to be in summer, when this event venue along the Detroit River hosts culturally diverse festivals and the Movement electronic music extravaganza. Come early: the Financial District is often jam-packed with vehicle and foot traffic, especially during events.
Getting Around Detroit
The best way to get around Detroit is on the Detroit People Mover (DPM), an automated light rail system in downtown Detroit that operates every 3 minutes. Fares are $0.75 per ride. Hours of operation are 6:30 a.m.-midnight Monday-Thursday; 6:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-2 a.m. Saturday and noon-midnight Sunday.
