Featured Metro Detroit City


Dearborn is known as a destination for Middle Eastern food -- as it should be. But there is a lot more going on in this city than just falafels. Cuisine from all around the world, independent boutiques, cozy pubs and thumping clubs can be found -- as can historic homes and, increasingly, lofts and townhouses. Dearborn is also one of metro Detroit's most underrated cultural hubs, with major events and attractions like the Maker Faire, the Henry Ford Museum and Estate, and the Arab American National Museum.
