When you travel from San Francisco to Detroit, you'll arrive in a welcoming destination that offers many new venues and old favorites, for holiday goers and business travelers to explore, from the revitalized riverfront to the casino district.
Getting around the vast area of Detroit is easy when you have a reliable rental car. Once you get the keys to your rental vehicle at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, you can set out to explore the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Cobo Center and more.
Detroit has the nickname "Motor City" for a good reason. The city was built for driving, and you'll get to experience the fun and freedom of the roads during your stay. Sports fans will love heading to a professional sports game at Comerica Park, or you could catch a live performance at the Ford Theater downtown. Stop by Hitsville U.S.A. on your way to Philip A. Hart Plaza, for a chance to dive into local culture.
The trip from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) takes about six hours in total. If you happen to have a layover, stop by the Belle Isle Conservatory, a greenhouse and botanical garden display just a short drive away from the airport.
