The Spirit of Detroit is one of the famous landmarks that you will want to see. It is a cool statue and often dressed in jersey supporting the local teams.

The Spitit of Detroit is a beautiful statue to visit if you are in the area. Many tourist attractions, restaurants, bars nearby. Especially beautiful at nighttime. Don't make a special trip - visit if you are nearby.

The spirit of Detroit is an interesting statue to visit. It’s well maintained and is way bigger in person than I imagined. It’s right in the heart of the action in downtown and worth a visit if you’re in Detroit.

This is a cool Statue located in downtown, a few mins away from GM building and the River bank. Plenty of things around to do like restaurants etc and this Statue looks very nice. Must visit if you are in Downtown.

The site is a one of the true photo opt, when your are in downtown Detroit. It is across the street from other photo opt's of the Joe Louis fist, Hart Plaza, Cobo Hall & The Ren Cen.

This is a well known monument that shows the true spirit of Detroit. Many times when one of the sports teams makes it to the post season playoffs they adorn this statue with the teams jersey. Great photo op when this takes place!

Nice landmark worth snapping a picture at while in town. The city has blocked off traffic at this landmark and even setup a large game of chess right in front of the statue.
