Midtown, the Cass Corridor, there may be differing opinions on what to call this Detroit neighborhood but one thing everyone can agree on is that there is no shortage of things to do. Saying that Midtown has it all is quite appropriate: neighborhoods, educational and cultural institutions, great food and shopping, it's all here.
Midtown is home to both Wayne State University and the College for Creative Studies. It's also where you'll find the world renowned Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and Michigan Science Center. Planning on heading to Detroit to visit one of these attractions? If so there will be plenty to do both before and after.
The neighborhood is home to great Detroit restaurants both old and new. The list includes Selden Standard, which was named 'Detroit restaurant of the year' by the Detroit Free Press in 2015, and Hour Detroit Magazine in 2016. You'll also find Hatch Detroit winners La Feria and Rock City Eatery, along with neighborhood favorites Motor City Brewing Works, Traffic Jam & Snug, Cass Cafe, and the Bronx Bar to name a few.
Midtown in recent years has become one of Detroit's best shopping destinations. The list of retailers calling this neighborhood home is long, including Shinola, City Bird, Nest, Hugh, Nora, Source Booksellers and Will Leather Goods.
