Detroit Casinos

Detroit casinos bring an added appeal to the rejuvenated city, on top of accounting for a large increase in the city's tax base. For roughly eight years, the MotorCity Casino, the Greektown Casino and the MGM Grand Casino brought Las Vegas style gaming to Michigan's largest city with temporary facilities. Various lawsuits stalled these Detroit casinos from breaking ground on their permanent facilities, but after cutting through all the red tape, the casinos are finally making good on their long term goals. The Detroit casinos bring increased interest in Detroit as a destination, and while some people refute the benefits of having casinos in their cities, it's hard to argue with the addition of thousands of jobs, not to mention the overall investment that such facilities bring to a city. The permanent casinos Detroit Michigan now boasts bring "all-inclusive" environments, where hotels, shopping, dining, entertainment and gaming options are all rolled into one. With the revamped gambling casinos Detroit offers, visitors have the chance to integrate state of the art gaming into their Detroit itineraries.

Among the gambling casinos Detroit offers, the first to open its permanent gaming facilities was the MotorCity Casino, which is located at 2901 Grand River Avenue. Depending on when you read this article, the MotorCity Casino likely will have finished its $275 million renovation project. The MGM Grand Casino, found at 1777 Third Street, was the first to open all of their revamped facilities, which include added gaming space, a luxury hotel and various dining and retail opportunities. By 2008, the Greektown Casino, at 555 E. Lafayette Avenue, will have finished its renovations and improvements, bringing all of the casinos Detroit Michigan offers into a new era of excellence. By the time all the permanent facilities are finished, each of these Detroit casinos will feature 100,000 square feet of gaming space, 400-room hotels with spas, their own parking garages and added touches to their respective interiors and exteriors. Together, the now-permanent casinos Detroit Michigan features are looking towards the future, and they are dedicated to bringing the city back into the forefront of the American tourism arena.

One of the best things about the gambling casinos Detroit experience is that the gaming establishments are within easy reach of each other in Detroit's rejuvenated downtown district. Visitors can stay at one of the downtown Detroit hotels, or choose one of the casino hotels to be close to all the action. The downtown Detroit People Mover automated train makes getting around the city and to the different casinos a breeze. Each is also conveniently located next to parking options that include downtown parking garages and surface lots. Even if gambling is the main activity that you have planned for your Detroit vacation, you can still enjoy nearby attractions when you decide to take a break. The Motown Historical Museum, the Detroit Museum of Arts, Comerica Field, the Joe Louis Arena, the downtown Riverwalk and so much more await casino guests looking to explore town a bit. The Greektown Casino rests comfortably in the exciting Greektown neighborhood, which happens to be among the city's favorite hangout spots. Various Detroit daytrip possibilities could also see casino guests crossing the border into Canada to explore the Windsor Casino, or could entail trips to the legendary Henry Ford Museum and the Detroit Zoo. The new-age Detroit casinos give visitors the chance to enjoy an Atlantic City or Las Vegas experience while taking advantage of all the joys of the Motor City.
