With a current circulation of 200,000 per issue, Visit Detroit gives readers a glossy tour of Motown, guiding locals and visitors through the city’s restaurants, shops, and hotels twice a year. Eyes scan the D-Tours section while pens mark calendars with the year’s biggest events, from the Lions' opening day to museum exhibits. Skip to eats down the street or around the corner, using D-Code the D to reveal attractions in the neighborhood or translate colloquial expressions into pig Latin. The publication acts as a printed concierge, listing the best places to sleep, munch, or shop in Michigan’s famed urban oasis. Each issue features brand-new articles and reviews on the latest city happenings. Readers can take a sneak peek at the last issue’s exposé on the city’s runway fashions and designers.
