Detroit Auto Show

It’s also a great weekend to head to Detroit with the Auto Show opening to the public on Saturday. I visited on Media Days and shared some of the Family Friendly Activities at the Auto Show. Check our review for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Auto Show. (enter by 12:45p on Friday, January 13). Also, if you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow me and join us at our #DetroitLovesAutos Twitter Party from noon-1p on Friday, January 13.
