Inside Detroit operates the Downtown Welcome Center which offers maps and information to anyone wishing to know more about the city, be they local, from the surrounding suburbs or from another city or country. We assist visitors with transportation options, fun things to do and see in the city like the river walk, museum information, bars and restaurants, festivals and events.
The Welcome Center also has a retail section selling locally produced and handmade products made by over 50 Detroit-based artists. Visitors can get completely unique Detroit souvenirs and products.
Inside Detroit began in 2005 when Maureen Kearns and Jeanette Pierce came together under the same thought: The more people know Detroit, the more they love it. As two people who lived, worked and played in Detroit they wanted to show people the great gems, many of them hidden, that Detroit had to offer, but they wanted to do it from an Insider’s perspective.
Not only did they want to show people the history and architecture, they wanted to show them where they could find great boutiques and great beer too.
Most importantly, they wanted to introduce people to the Detroit community, which is full of diverse, interesting and friendly people. More than 3 years later Inside Detroit is continuing to grow and educate people about the unique city of Detroit…and loving every minute of it!
The Downtown Welcome Center is open
11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday
