Cheap flights from San Diego to Detroit

The San Diego International Airport (SAN) is an impressive venue, featuring spa services and art exhibits. The Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) however, offers an underground tunnel with flashing lights and music. Once you make the trip from San Diego to Detroit, you will find yourself less than a half hour away from Ann Arbor. You’ll also find yourself in the vicinity of Detroit attractions including the Fox Theater, Comerica Park, and the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Key Facts

If you rent a car at DTW, take I-94 east to visit Ann Arbor, or west to visit Detroit. While the airport has a Detroit address, it is located on the far outskirts of the city, so it will take approximately 30 minutes to get to most attractions. Ann Arbor is about the same distance away, but is in the opposite direction.

Once in Detroit, take a walk along the River Front and enjoy a casual meal in Mexicantown. After dark, try to catch a show at the Fillmore Detroit in the entertainment district. In Ann Arbor, tour the University of Michigan and stroll along Main Street. The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is always a place for fun and relaxation.

Hints and Tips

A nonstop flight from SAN to DTW takes less than five hours, but you can expect a flight with stops to take closer to six hours. Every terminal at DTW features a Ground Transportation Center, where you can rent a car quickly to get started on your vacation.

*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
