I have never been to Michigan, but I am fairly certain that Detroit is not as bad as people say it is. The crime rate is so high that people seem to forget that there are so many things in the city to adore. Think about it this way: Every city has a rich history and it is up to you to find it. That is why I am making plans to visit the city next year. I want to look past all of the bad things I hear all of the time on the news and explore the city.

Don’t get me wrong; I am not headed to parts of the city that are known for having a high crime rate. I plan to stay downtown in one of the hotels there and visit a few museums, landmarks and other great places. If I have a great time, I plan to share it with all of the people I come across online and offline.  I was in a chat room with a guy that owns a duct cleaning company (http://www.azductpros.com), and he gave me a few tips about touring Detroit since he grew up there. Communication like this will help people understand that something that is always seen as being ugly can have a very beautiful side as well. I guess I will be finding that out soon enough.
