Explore Detroit - H #atozchallenge

Come along with me and explore the beauty & general awesomeness of Detroit, A to Z !

We have lots of cool places to visit today!

Hockeytown Cafe - because we ARE Hockeytown!    I've been here several times.  The food is pretty good, but nothing that really stands out as "different" or "amazing".  It's typical sports bar / family restaurant food.  The decor has a lot of cool old Red Wings memorabilia and a motorcycle in the lobby that's on rollers.  And it's only a block from Comerica Park & Ford Field.

Hitsville USA - since Detroit is known for being the home of Motown - this museum is located in the very house that Berry Gordy lived in the early days of Motown Records.  You can also visit Studio A, where a lot of the earliest Motown music was recorded. 
According to the website, last December they announced a 50,000 sq foot addition to the museum!
Hart Plaza - this is named for late senator Philip Hart and is located in a 14 acre block that is approximately where Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac landed in 1701, founding the settlement that ultimately became Detroit.  The fountain is the Horace E Dodge (of automotive fame) & Son Memorial Fountain.  
There are 2 amphitheaters located here and in the summertime, there are tons of festivals & concerts. 
Hard Rock Cafe - need I say more?
