About Southwest Detroit
Experience Motown's sports scene in Downtown Detroit. Once a commercial district lined with extravagant movie theaters and huge department stores, this area has recently become a residential area packed with professional sports venues. Besides Joe Louis Arena, home of the NHL's Red Wings, Comerica Park baseball stadium was inaugurated in 2000 to replace Tiger Stadium, and Ford Field became the home of the Detroit Lions in 2002. In the center of the sports action is an area that maintains its old-town charm, with art deco landmarks such as swanky Fox Theatre, the Pewabic-tiled Guardian Building, and comic-book-Gothic One Detroit Center. Catch a game or slide into Hockeytown Cafe for a pitcher of beer, HDTV sports, and deep-fried "red wings."

Cadillacs blaring Motown once lined these streets, but Detroit is moving on from its Motor City days with turnpikes turned to bike trails, pioneering urban farms around Eastern Market, and bargain dining and drinking in interethnic Greektown—a far cry from the 8 Mile urban jungle of Eminem rap fame, though you can still find Tigers in Comerica Park and Lions in Ford Field.
