Maybe you feel like jumping behind the wheel and hitting the open road in Downtown Detroit without a plan. However, don't rush off without brushing up on some basic facts!
One of the greatest things about road tripping is that you get to know a bunch of interesting people. So while you're staying in Downtown Detroit, why not journey out of town in your rental car and acquaint yourself with some of the other 713,800 folk who call Detroit their home?
If your trip to Downtown Detroit is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a little empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
You'll find a range of sights within easy reach of this neighborhood, such as Campus Martius Park. More adventure is waiting for you at Detroit Opera House and Second Baptist Church, which are also a stone's throw away.
During your stay, it makes sense to check out nearby Detroit. Midtown is another place that's worth checking out. Want to explore Detroit first? It's located 0.1 miles from Downtown Detroit. Alternatively, Midtown is 1 mile away.
Constantly traveling for work? Convention centers are probably quite familiar to you. With easy access to hotels and restaurants, your trip is sure to be a success if you're on your way to any of these places:
Availability of parking and heavy city traffic should be considered when selecting your ride. While large people-movers and SUVs are very comfy and roomy, their size can make them harder to maneuver and park. Seeing as Downtown Detroit is just 0.1 miles from Detroit, chances are you'll spend some time zigzagging your way around town. Want our advice? Go for a ride with enough room for all your buddies and your luggage while still being compact enough to cope with city driving. Our standard-size vehicles are great all-rounders and should fit the bill.
You'll be glad to know that there's a broad range of both economy and high-end vehicles to rent in Downtown Detroit. What you end up opting for depends on how much you're willing to spend and the activities you've got planned. Specialty vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you feel like splashing out, why not pick up an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you just need a car to zip around town in as efficiently as possible, maybe go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
