(WJBK) - If you're looking for a new way to experience or see the city, check out Detroit Experience Factory.
The company offers both walking and bus tours. Executive Director Jeanette Pierce says these aren't your average tours with scripted information. All their tour guides live in Detroit so they have a personal touch of their experience with the city to add to the tour.
Visitors from more than 100 countries have taken their tours, but Jeanette says they love giving tours to locals as there's always something new to learn about Detroit.
For the locals, Detroit Experience Factory has issued a challenge to get out there and visit the more than 600 bars and restaurants in Detroit. They have a checklist on their website. You have three months to complete the challenge and everyone is invited to participate. All you have to do is visit the bar or restaurant, take a picture with what you bought and post it on Instagram with a specific hashtag and by tagging Detroit Experience Factory.
The grand prize winner gets the Ultimate Detroit Experience Package, which includes a private bar tour for up to 12 people, a dinner at Angelina and an overnight stay at Marriott Renaissance Center.
The contests closes September 30, 2016.
