Helpful tips

  • Most east/west running streets in Midtown have free parking (except within the museum district). North/south running streets are more likely to have metered parking.

  • City of Detroit has a helpful app you can download to pay for parking ($1/hr + processing fee) - so you don't have to run back to the meter. Free parking starts after 10PM on Fridays. Search "Park Detroit" in app store. 

  • Pay close attention to 1-way streets in museum district if you're coming for the first time
