    The same city that once experienced the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history has been making a huge comeback in recent years, especially as a place where new businesses are thriving.

    As a result, new retail shops, restaurants and other establishments that have made Detroit an exciting place to visit, filled with new things to do each day.

    Some of these newer retail establishments include the Nike Community Store, Lululemon, and Détroit Is The New Black. These shops allow Detroit to appeal to more fashion-forward individuals, creating more options for those interested in expanding their wardrobes.

    Meanwhile, newer restaurants such as The Apparatus Room, Lady of the House, River Bistro Detroit, and Ima are ensuring that the cuisine scene is never boring, with these new additions spicing up the Detroit menu.

    Even Google has gotten into the action. In recent months, the company confirmed that it will be opening a new office space directly next to Little Caesars Arena, filled with more than 100 media sales and technical support employees. The 29,178-square-foot office will be present on 52 East Henry Street and is expected to be complete in spring 2018.

    With this revelation in sight, it seems that a variety of corporate giants, small businesses, and start-ups will be in the mix to create a new and revived atmosphere in Detroit’s business center, making it a more vibrant city to enjoy and experience.

    Whether you’re someone who commutes to the city for work each day, or you’re simply looking to enjoy new shops and restaurants on the weekends, you can feel good knowing the Detroit Connector is your ticket to the renaissance.
