I love walking around downtown, and even in heart plaza! Detroit has rwally made a come back over the past few years! Its very nice. I also enjoy belle isle which is absoutly beautiful since it has became a state park. There's so much to do now in the park!
Since I moved in, quite a few new shops and restaurants have opened up, which has really increased the walkability of the downtown area. The proximity to restaurants, Eastern Market, and the riverwalk makes the downtown area a fantastic place to call home.
Many of the people who live downtown work for Quicken Loans, so the downtown area has become a bit of an odd microcosm of young mortgage brokers with a lot of money (a huge contrast from the rest of the city). Employment opportunities are somewhat limited for those without a college degree.
