Take a Short Road Trip From Detroit
Detroit is a great place to start for any type of adventure. Whether you’re looking for some beautiful scenery, a fun college town, or a new city vibe, Avis can help you find the best places to visit on a road trip from the DTW airport. Pick up a rental car at our DTW car rental location after you fly in. We have convenient fuel plans, and if your group won’t fit in a small rental car, you can load up your whole crew in a 12 passenger van.
Here’s has a handy list of road trip ideas to help you make the most of your time in the area.
This gorgeous state park is a favorite of Midwesterners from Chicago to Minneapolis, and for good reason. Silver Lake State Park is just under four hours from Detroit and offers miles and miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. There are sand dunes to rival the Sahara, meaning you’ll be in for all the fun of ATVing, dirt biking, or simply building a great sand castle. This park also has prime areas for camping and boating. Plan to spend at least a day or two in town and if you’re really feeling adventurous, try renting a dune buggy to explore the area.
Mackinac Island is another favorite of all Midwesterners, and luckily, Michigan gets to claim it. This historic island oozes with charm and . . . chocolate. Really. It’s truly a rite of passage to visit Mackinac Island and try their world-famous fudge. The island is a popular spot to bike, walk across the bridge, and enjoy the ferry ride. Though the island is quite touristy, you can always head off to explore some of the lesser-known sections of the area.
If you’re looking for a spot not too far from Detroit, Point Pelee National Park in Ontario is one of the best places to visit. Though the destination is just an hour away, you’re literally getting out of the country to our northern Canadian neighbors. You can enjoy the greenery and waterways, or head even further north and check out the small, picturesque town of Stratford. And while you’re in Canada, be sure to try the ethnic cuisine at a Middle Eastern or British restaurant.
