Summers in Detroit are warm, with temperatures that usually hover in the mid-80s. Nights can be cool, so pack a light sweater. Detroit winters can be harsh. The city usually gets three to four feet of snow on average over the season, and temperatures can dip into the teens, making a warm parka and other cold-weather gear a must.

In addition to enjoying the warm weather, you can experience some of the city’s popular events, such as the Woodward Dream Cruise in August or the Detroit International Jazz Festival, which is held each Labor Day weekend. Sports enthusiasts should make time to catch a Red Wings, Lions, or Tigers game while in the city. Other popular attractions include Belle Isle, the Motown Historical Museum, and the bustling Greektown neighborhood.
