SITES YOUR GUESTS WILL ENJOY WHILE IN DETROIT
While some weddings are smaller affairs, confined to the church and the site of the reception, if you are hosting lots of guests from out of town, why not treat them to Party Bus Detroit's transportation to and from some of our city's most interesting historical sites?
Around Wayne State University you'll find Detroit's Historic Cultural District, where you can tour the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Science Center, and the Detroit Historical Museum. Along the skyline you'll see our tallest building, GM's global headquarters, The Renaissance Center—affectionately known by the locals as the Ren Cen.
Music and Theatre
Music lovers will surely want to tour Hitsville USA, otherwise known as the Motown Museum, where the Motown sound was born with artists like Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Martha and The Vandellas, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Wonder. There's also the Fisher Theatre where you can see a touring Broadway show.
Sports and Gambling
Sports fans will certainly want to make stops at the home of the Detroit Tigers, Comerica Park... at the home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field... and at the home of the Detroit Red Wings, Joe Louis Arena. If your game of choice is gambling, there are of course three elegant casinos to try: MGM Grand, Greektown Casino, and MotorCity Casino.
Concerts and Expos
If your guests would like to see some entertainment while in town, there are of course concerts at The Palace of Auburn Hills and DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston. For more refined tastes there is always the Jazz Cafe at Music Hall, conveniently located downtown. For guests who love to shop, Great Lakes Crossing or The Somerset Collection are two fine malls in the area, and there are always expos and shows happening at Rock Financial Showplace in Novi.
Bar Hopping After The Vows
If you're having a more casual alternative wedding with a smaller guest list, maybe you want to take the crew bar hopping after you say your vows. This is a great reason to rent a party bus or limo. Everyone in your party (including you!) can enjoy all the alcohol they desire without having to worry about driving.
You can also see additional resources at Detroit Wedding Locations, Detroit Wedding Receptions, and Detroit Wedding Venues.
