"Exploring Detroit's nightlife with a couple of expats who were new in town, too, made the transition to the States so much more fun. "

  • Moving to Detroit

    Detroit, best known as the “Motor City”, is a multicultural metropolis with a completely different climate in each season, cold winters and warm and humid summers. For expats, finding accommodation should not be a problem with a lot of different affordable neighborhoods. Find out more with this guide.
  • Living in Detroit

    Living in Detroit gives expats plenty of opportunities to enjoy the city and its mix of cultures, including Detroit’s four major professional sports teams. Life in Detroit does, however, also come with a comparatively sub-par public transportation system, so better get your own car.
  • Working in Detroit

    After a long period of economic downturn, Detroit is now buzzing with a new optimism and growth across industries with major companies sitting alongside smaller start-ups. That makes it a great place for expats to find work in Detroit, no matter what industry or which opportunities you are looking for.

Find Out More about Life in Detroit

"Motor City" has contributed much to the USA in its 300-year history. Economically, it was one of the manufacturing powerhouses of the country, producing millions of cars for the American consumers. Culturally, it is a town whose record labels gave the world Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and The Supremes. Nowadays Detroit is a city greatly misunderstood. Although the city has endured tough times financially, it remains an exciting place to live and is packed with ultra-modern downtown development and a vibrant music scene, and is headquarters to many corporate giants, such as General Motors. The best way to truly discover the city is to learn from those living there. That's where our Detroit expat community can help you get to grips with this buzzing city.
