Fly from Washington to Detroit

Detroit is a diverse and culturally-rich city in the state of Michigan at the border of the United States and Canada. This mid-sized city is the largest both in Michigan and at the border, and is a significant port for the Great Lakes area situated on the Detroit River. The city is the historic capital of the automotive industry, but experienced a precipitous decline in the latter half of the 20th century due to a shrinking population and changes in the economic environment. Recent times has seen the rise of a renaissance for the city spearheaded by residents. A thriving urban gardening movement and trend of new renovations for historic buildings has proven to be the template for cities in similar straits throughout the country.
