The long flight from Atlanta to Detroit pays off once you land, as the city offers everything from hit Broadway shows to exciting sports venues. You can catch a show at the Detroit Opera House or explore exhibits at the Henry Ford Museum. Whether you plan to stay a few days or a week, a car rental from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW), can get you anywhere in the city at your convenience.
Detroit is one of largest cities in Michigan and has multiple interstates flowing from downtown, all the way to Toledo, Ann Arbor and Lansing. The Detroit River separates Michigan from Canada and provides beautiful views from the Pointe Mouillee State Game Area, found just south of the city. While in Detroit, travelers should make sure to visit the Albert Kahn-designed Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, on Belle Isle, and a few downtown restaurants for a taste of the local cuisine, such as Coach Insignia.
Hints and Tips
A nonstop flight from Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to DTW lasts about two hours. Once you pick up your rental car, take Interstate 94 to reach Detroit proper. Depending on the season of your visit, you can watch a Tigers or Lions game, or visit the Detroit Auto Show, for a glimpse of new concept cars.
