Detroit is the largest city in Michigan and its commercial and cultural epicenter. It is situated on the Detroit River between Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie directly across from Windsor, Ontario. Detroit is popularly known as the `Motor City` because the city has deep ties not just to the auto industry but also to Motown, the record label that changed popular music forever. Once considered a very unsafe city, much of central Detroit is safer than ever now, and is quite walkable.
