How to see the best sights in the US state of Michigan

Al Jazeera America is hosting a free, six-day tour of America’s largest city, Detroit, with a special focus on the city’s iconic landmarks.

The US tour, which will take place in April, is the first-ever Detroit Sightseeing Week and aims to inspire visitors to make Detroit their second home.

Participants will travel from Michigan’s largest urban area to Detroit’s historic downtown, from the state Capitol to the Michigan Historical Society and from Michigan Stadium to the Detroit Lions’ stadium.

Detroit, home of the Detroit Tigers football team, has long been a destination for tourists.

Last year, the state spent more than $1 billion to refurbish the iconic Ford Motor Company headquarters, which houses the team’s headquarters and is now home to the Lions football team.
