Welcome to the largest historic public market district in the United States. You'll eat, you'll shop, take some photos, and go home happy and take a well-deserved nap. Start this tour before 9AM if you want the best selection of stuff, or start later for the best selection of people-watching.
The locations, descriptions, and pictures in this tour are taken from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Register_of_Historic_Places_listings_in_Detroit,_Michigan .
