History comes alive at many Detroit attractions

Great Lakes power the Detroit climate

Detroit vacation rentals enable you to experience Detroit’s temperate climate and 4 well-defined seasons. The Detroit climate is greatly influenced by the Great Lakes. The condensation of water vapor from these lakes causes frequent cloud coverage over Detroit. Winters are cold with moderate snowfall and summers are warm and sunny. Summers usually run from May to September and are a wonderful time of the year to appreciate the activities on and around the Detroit River. Winter’s chills will provide you time to experience the wide variety of museums, shops, and theaters.

Detroit has unique geographic attributes

Experience nature in Detroit at the only international wildlife preserve in North America that is located in the heart of a major metropolitan area. The preserve includes islands, coastal wetlands, marshes, and shoals along 48 miles of the Detroit River. Detroit sits north of its sister-city, Windsor, Ontario, and it’s the only city in the United States where you need to travel south to reach Canada. Both Detroit and Windsor sit atop the Detroit Moraine, a broad clay ridge which rises approximately 62 feet above the Detroit River.
