If you're not much of a baseball fan, this ballpark – home field for the Detroit Tigers – is for you. While diehard fans are glued to their seats in hopes of catching a fly ball, casual onlookers can enjoy some of the park's more unusual attractions, including a carousel, a 50-foot Ferris wheel, a beer hall, a food court, plus a center field water feature that's synchronized to music. Perhaps it's these unique diversions that earned Detroit a spot on the list of 10 Best Cities for Baseball Fans to Visit.

Recent visitors (especially devoted baseball fans) said this is a beautiful park; some even described it as a bucket-list stadium thanks to its easy-to-navigate layout and skyline views. Plus, travelers reported good sightlines throughout the park, even the bleachers.

Comerica Park is located in downtown Detroit. There are approximately 4,500 parking spots surrounding the stadium and the Fox Theatre, but rates can be pricey, ranging from $10 to $25 for the duration of the game. If you'd rather not deal with traffic, there are several bus stops and People Mover stations within walking distance of the park. If you're not in town to catch a game, you can still experience Comerica Park via a stadium tour. Tours, which include stops at home dugout, the Detroit Tigers Walk of Fame and the visiting clubhouse, are offered June through September on Tuesdays and Fridays. Tickets cost $6 for adults and $4 for children on non-game days and $5 on game days. Game ticket prices vary depending on the day and opponent. For more information on tours and games, visit the website

#1 Detroit Institute of the Arts

Arguably one of the city's foremost cultural destinations, the Detroit Institute of Arts dates back to 1885, but the beaux-arts building (referred to as the "temple of art")  that it now resides in opened in 1927. The institute is huge, comprising more than 100 galleries, a 1,150-seat auditorium and a 380-seat lecture hall. And its permanent collection is extensive: On its walls are Diego Rivera's "Detroit Industry" fresco and Vincent Van Gogh's "Self Portrait" painting, among other works. The institute also hosts events like Friday Night Live! concerts and Art + Authors book discussions.

For many visitors, a visit to the DIA was a highlight of their Detroit trip, with some calling it a "national gem." Though many were initially drawn because of the museum's Diego Rivera collection, reviewers said they were satisfied with every part of the DIA, especially the temporary exhibits. Visitors also praised the staff, which they said were friendly and helpful.
