Best events in Detroit for Spring Break 2017

Detroit is not recognized as a Spring Break destination.

Why? Because the Motor City is sometimes prone to winter weather even in the beginning of Spring. But if you’re one of those travelers who want an alternative to the crowded beaches of the south, then you may want to rethink Detroit as a destination. Here are the best events and places where you can party in the city for Spring Break.
