Detroit’s North American International Auto Show occurs in mid-January and draws nearly three-quarters of a million visitors annually. I Love Detroit Michigan recommends its readers attend on mid-week days or nights to avoid exasperating cases of wall-to-wall humanity. Last year we paid a measly $12 to experience NAIAS 2102. Admission to the 2013 NAIAS Industry Preview would’ve burnt a hole in our pockets at $95, but we are fortunate to have friends on the inside. ~I♥DM
