    Also a must is the Cranbrook Institute of Art and Science (www.cranbrook.edu). I haven't been there in a while, but the last time i went it was awesome! They have laser light shows to music, an observatory and great exhibits.

    There is a lot of angery people in Detroit. With the differences between white and black being a point of too much conversation, it is easy to get the impression that the civil rights riots never really ended... they just took a break. - My recommendation... forget the baggage of the locals and go to a soul food cafe. It's the mix of black and white that gives Detroit it's best character.

    Drive like a maniac here and you'll fit right in! I'm only slightly exaggerating too. I will tell you one thing do NOT stop at yellow lights or you're bound to get hit from behind. Keep on moving unless it turns red and yet you'll still see some Detroit drivers passing right through. Being an Ohio driver originally I still have trouble adjusting to my 'Detroit Driving' and I'm quite sure I'm going to end up with a ticket in Ohio soon enough because I didn't switch to my 'Cleveland Driving' quick enough!

    Whatever you do, do not say anything bad about the red wings, people here are very sensative and very involved in hockey. The red wings and the Joe louise arena are life. Tipping is cusomery at 15% at restaraunts, and about 20-25% and fancy places. Do not call downtown or detroit run down or unorganized
