July 28 we will be driving 4 hours to  a Justin Bieber concert. I don't know anything about the area and I am nervous.  The arena is located at 19 Steve Yzerman Dr. Any help?

I would recommend calling the venue to aks about secure parking and available security.  Are only adults going or will young kids be with you?  You know that the adults should be sober and on guard and walk like you will kick someone's ass if they try to jack with you. don't wear super nice stuff that may attract unwanted attention from possible thieves (like expensive purses, etc...).   I have never been to Detroit, but lived in DC for many years.  You need to act like you are from the city and don't look like a victim - look people in the eye.   Most thieves don't want a fight.

Eh. A lot of places will have parking for like 15 dollars I think. It's watched and they usually have people standing by until about 1-2 am.

DH and I go to Detroit all the time and his school is right in Midtown (near The Fillmore)

We don't have enough money for a hotel or limo. We are doing it all in one day.

Not a place I would ever go for any reason

It's also where Pawn Stars is filmed
