Evitas Detroit Itinerary

When Evita Robinson, founder of Nomadness Travel Tribe and Audacity Fest, said yes to come to Detroit to partake in a spotlight on our city, we were overjoyed. Pandemic restrictions aside, the hardest part of preparing for her three day visit was narrowing down the places, rooms, and people she could share with her! Check out her itinerary and check out all of the hot sports she has attended and the people she is associated with.

Friday-

Dinner in the Central Kitchen in the Campus Martius area in the city center. A black owned restaurant that adds a touch of Detroit to the traditional American fair. Delicious food and delicious cocktails were definitely a highlight of the night.

Photo shoot in some of the hottest spots in downtown Detroit. The art scene is so inspiring and expansive that there are over 1,000 murals in Detroit alone. Not to mention stopping by two of Detroit’s premier cultural institutions, the Motown Museum and the Charles H. Wright Museum.

Downtown shopping is saturated with a wide variety of options. Evita couldn’t leave these locations without making a purchase!
