Detroit is the largest and most populous city in the US state of Michigan, and is incredibly popular with foreign visitors due to its numerous local attractions and world-famous local music scene.

The city is also known as the automobile capital of the US and this industry is the primary reason for Detroit’s strong local economy and low unemployment rates.

Detroit is targeted primarily at older visitors, as many of its attractions include several libraries, museums and natural gardens, as well as the impressive Downtown Detroit, which remains a busy hub of activity into the early hours of the morning.

Arriving Detroit Airport

Detroit Airport is a major international airport, primarily serving the city of Detroit, based in the US state of Michigan. It is Michigan’s largest and busiest airport and was recently ranked as America’s best large airport in several independent polls.

Located just 6km from downtown Detroit, taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be expected to charge as low as $8-$12 for the journey.

Airport processes such as check in, security, baggage collection and car rental options can be a little slow-moving due to the volume of visitors, but you shouldn’t be too long waiting around in the airport before collecting your car.

Parking at Detroit Airport is also relatively easy, with a range of short-term and long-term slots available, when picking up or dropping off your rental car.

The airport also boasts an extensive array of services, facilities, shops and dining outlets with a good selection and various price ranges, as well as free wi-fi access for its passengers.

Driving In Detroit

Driving in Detroit can be quite difficult for 1st time drivers. Car parking can be expensive and finding car park availability can be quite a long-winded process. You may want to take public transport to visit the local attractions.

Congestion is also a common problem, particularly at busy times of the day and the local pedestrians don’t always seem to think twice before stepping into the road

Therefore, great care must be taken while driving through the city, although matters improve on the outskirts of Detroit where road conditions improve greatly.
