Experiences In The D | The Blog for Visit Detroit

The Visit Detroit Blog is part of The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB).

A Day in The D [Blogger Event Recap]

Posted on Tuesday, July 16 2013 in Culture


Detroit, just like any other city, has its attractions that make it unique and pleasureable to visit. These attractions are what lure out-of-town visitors to explore a new scene. Sometimes, when you live and work in a city, it can be diffult to view it as a visitor.

We took some metro-Detroit bloggers on a tour of the city and metro are they live in and showed them places they never knew existed or never had the time to visit. This wasn't really a vaction, but more of a stay-cation and chance to discover The D.

First, we invited select bloggers to join:

  Feeding the Giraffe.

"Think you’ve seen Detroit? Not like this. Join the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau for A Day in The D, a Detroit-centric day of networking, behind-the-scenes opportunities and special tours like you’ve never experienced. Discover new beats and rhythms at Detroit’s own Kid Rock Music Lab found in the Detroit Historical Museum. We’ll take you behind the counter for pizza-making at Detroit’s own Buddy’s Pizza, named a “Top 25 Pizza Spot in the U.S.” by Food & Wine; give you a sneak peek at the 2013 Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix; and top off the evening with an interactive dinner as you order via tablet at Greektown Casino-Hotel’s fine dining restaurant: Brizola.


You may be a cultured traveler, but this trip is a can’t-miss event for any Detroit lover. Grab a coat, camera and your curiosity and meet us in The D."


We could tell you about the event, but we'll let the bloggers do what they do best.
