Metro Detroit: The city of universities, commerce and fresh water beaches in the US
It was about two years ago that I made a visit to Detroit in the state of Michigan of the US as a host to my friend Dilip Nagarkar who once lived as my neighbour and friend in Haryana.

He was kind enough to take me around the city and its surrounding area known more as a university city with the well known Michigan University besides many other universities and higher education institutions and research institutes.

While being taken around, Nagarkar told me that the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor was one of the world's leading education and research centres. On the other hand, the Wayne State University has the largest single-campus medical school in the nation.

With the offices of most top companies being located here, Metro Detroit is among the most populous and largest metropolitan economies in the US, I was told.

Metro Detroit is also known for its automotive heritage with Ford museum, arts, entertainment, popular music, and sports. From the car window, a variety of natural landscapes, houses and large parks were visible as we went around the city.

Also, the beaches with a recreational coastline linking the Great Lakes were hustling with tourists, holidayers and revellers.

Tourism is an important component of the region's culture and economy with a good number of casino resort hotels and large scale events such international Auto Show, cultural shows, sporting events, festivals and fairs are held here.

Another attraction is fresh water beaches with skiing as a popular sport along with the wildlife areas which includes islands, coastal wetlands, marshes, shoals, and waterfront lands for miles and miles together.

However, the leading attraction is the Henry Ford museum, located in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn; it is America's largest indoor-outdoor museum complex, which was slated to be visited the next day.
