  • During one of my last trips to Detroit I paused for a long time to see this incredible monument. We talk about a piece of history: this monument represents the power of his punch both inside and outside the ring. Due to the efforts of Louis to fight Jim Crow laws, the fist was symbolically aimed at racial injustice. In a city like Detroit this sculpture is still highly topical and contemporary. I suggest to anyone who steps from downtown Detroit to stop and look closely at this incredible Monument impressive how simple.

  • When you drive downtown head to Jefferson or toward Cobo Hall/Joe Louis riverfront area you will see this monument to one of the greatest citizens of Detroit.  more »
  • Definitely recommended to do the riverwalk, on a way from the downtown to the river you can take pictures the Joe Louis Monument, even climb on it, nobody's going to stop you :)  more »

  • A man that should be remembered for so much more than just fighting.
  • Nice part of Detroit. Look at the statue then take a walk by the water. Not much else there.
  • It was fascinating to see "The Fist" Everyone who visits Detroit must go visit this awesome monument of Joe Lewis!
  • I'm honestly not sure how you can review art. Its art and different for everyone. So, art.
  • Very iconic detroit man made landmark

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
