This old Detroit home belies the greatness that was born here: the Motown Sound. But one step inside Hitsville, USA, the original house where Berry Gordy lived and recorded the Motown hits, and you'll catch the beat and spirit of this booming music era. Photos, costumes, artwork, music and other memorabilia take you back to simpler times.

The guided tour is what makes this experience so enjoyable. Our guide, Peggy, was engaging, masterful, and truly "preached" the Motown story. In the midst of a cross country road trip this summer, this has been the high point so far.
