Travel Info
The city of Detroit, located in the heart of Michigan, is known as the world's automotive trade center, but there is so much more to this great city than that. It operates on Eastern Daylight Time and is spread out over 143 square miles. It is bordered by smaller cities and the only international wildlife preserve in North America, "The Detroit River international Wildlife Refuge". The gorgeous wildlife refuge, metropolitan city life and easy access to the waterfront are all contributing factors to the growth and popularity of this international city.
Arriving by Air:
The Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County airport is located in the heart of suburban Michigan and is the most widely used airport for international flights in Michigan.
Getting Around:
The most convenient way to get around Detroit is to hire a taxi or a driver, but if you are planning on being in town for a while then it might be a good idea to look into renting a car and investing in an up to date map of Michigan or purchasing a GPS navigational device.
