Discover Detroit, MI


Motor City, aka, Detroit, Michigan, lays on the U.S.-Canadian border in the Midwest and the Great Lake region of the U.S. It is a city in close proximity to large bodies of water, with the Detroit River flowing through and with Lake St Clair just outside the city connecting to the Detroit River. Detroit is one of the largest and most populous cities, with one of the biggest economies in the U.S., due largely to their port and their central role in the U.S. automobile industry. Detroit is also one the most diverse in culture, particularly in music, but also in the arts, architecture, and design. When exploring the city, these features will become apparent, from the high-volume of jazz clubs and theaters to the distinctive architecture.
Detroit is a great place to rent an RV. With the cultural treasures within the city and the natural wonders nearby, you will be doing a whole lot of exploring and need a place to rest up. With parks such as Pontiac Lake Recreation Area and Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge nearby, you may be surprised by just how much nature you can experience in the vicinity of what is undoubtedly a major city.
If you decide to park your RV rental in Detroit, MI during the day, know that there is a mass transit system and traveling through the city will be easy.

The Great Outdoors
As a major industrial hub, Detroit often isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you’re looking for outdoor recreation. But there’s plenty here to keep you exploring. For instance, a trip with an RV rental in Detroit can’t be complete without a visit to the Great Lakes. Lake Erie and Lake Huron will be the closest options and are both excellent choices. In any of these magical lakes, you can swim, boat, or relax on the shore.
For natural wonders closer to Detroit, spend some time at the Detroit River and Lake St. Claire. A swim in the Detroit River is not recommended; however, a boat cruise and tour or a kayaking tour will get you out on the water. Some of the cruises have special nights and themes; some have dinner and live entertainment. There are even yacht charters that cruise the river. Whether you want a simple cruise, a kayak tour or a full three-course dinner with an open bar, it depends on you.
Enjoy a day at the park at Belle Isle Park. This park sits on an island between Detroit and Ontario. At 982-acres, this is the largest island park in the U.S. and houses many attractions. You may even need several days to fully explore the island and visit everything. This island is the home of the Belle Isle Aquarium, the Conservatory, and the Nature Center. It also houses the Detroit Boat Club, the James Scott Memorial, and the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. In case that’s not enough, there’s a golf course, a beach, monuments, and many more attractions. This is a great stop if you have kids, with so much to see and do in a relatively small area.

RV Parks
Camper Rental in Detroit can be tricky, as there are no dedicated RV parks in town, but if you broaden your search outside the city limits, there are multiple possibilities. Certainly, you will enjoy waking up lakeside in the country rather than waking up to sirens in the city. RV camps outside of the city provide a way to escape all the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.
The closest RV site to Detroit is actually the Windsor Campground in Ontario, Canada. It’s just under 12 miles, making it incredibly convenient to pick up your travel trailer rental in Detroit and get set up for the night. Bear in mind, though, that it does involve a border crossing, so that 12 miles could take longer than you think and require a passport.
If you’d rather keep your motorhome rental in Detroit, Wayne County Fairgrounds and RV Park is a good option, just under 30 miles outside of the city. Very close to Belleville Lake and the Yankee Air Museum,it’s less than a mile from Walmart and the closest fitness center. You can easily spend the day relaxing and enjoying this area in Belleville.

Exploring the City
Detroit is known for its architecture. While there, immerse yourself in the city by taking an architecture tour. Depending on your style, you can choose from a self-guided tour, free walking tour, join a guided tour, or hire a private guide. If a guided tour doesn’t suit you, simply crafting a plan and going to various architectural sites can be fulfilling and give a good sense of the city’s architectural genius.
The arts play a major role in making Detroit the cultural hub it is. While visiting, there are many ways to experience this vibrant scene, including attending live events. Live music is a must when visiting Detroit. Music has been such a huge part of Detroit’s identity through the ages, including the Motown era and its contributions to modern hip-hop. Detroit hosts some major musical events such as the Detroit International Music Festival, the Motor City Music Conference, and the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. If you happen to miss one of these events, Detroit has one of the most active and historic jazz scenes in the U.S. Another way to experience art is to visit the theater, the city has many theaters throughout the city and even has a Broadway street with several theaters.
Detroit is also big on sports and has three major sports venues. Sports fans can visit the venues for a tour or even better, to catch a game. Comerica houses the Detroit Tigers baseball team, Ford Field houses the Detroit Lions football team, and Little Caesars Arena houses both the Detroit Pistons basketball team and the Detroit Red Wings hockey team.
If you have kids in tow, check out the Detroit Zoo. With over 2,000 animals, the kids will be highly entertained.
Whether you’re heading to Detroit for the live music, arts, architecture, or food or traveling to the Great Lakes, start your search for an RV in Detroit and get that exploration started.
