 Detroit Rental Cars

Finding great rental cars in Detroit is simple!

Motor City isn't just for fans of automobiles of soulful music - Detroit, Michigan, is a dynamic town that offers you and your family a range of world-class attractions in this small city. After disembarking from your plane, hop in your Detroit rental car, and get ready to be wowed by "The Wolverine State."

Cuddle up with some animals
Detroit is minutes away from a number of interactive animal experiences that are sure to delight any kid! Take your little ones in your Detroit car rental over to the Detroit Zoo, where you and your family will come face to face with Arctic polar bears, watch giraffes and white rhinos leisurely snack in the afternoon shade or check out the rare red panda stalk its way through the zoo's Asian Forest habitat. Got kids who want to touch everything? Take a short trip over to Ann Arbor to Domino's Petting Farm, where you can interact with rare breeds of cattle, sheep and donkeys across this expansive rural environment.

It's not called Hockeytown for nothing
Detroit has a number of professional sports teams, but as most locals will tell you, hockey is always the most popular. Steer your Detroit rental car in the direction of the Civic Center to catch a game of the 10-time Stanley Cup champion team the Detroit Red Wings. If you plan your visit outside of hockey season, you can always take a tour of the center with your kids. You all will enjoy walking through the Zamboni tunnel, touring the press box and taking a peek inside a locker room.

The real Coney
Kids are notorious for their picky palates, yet many of Detroit's most famous entrees are sure to be a hit with visitors of all ages. Southeastern Michigan is known for its Coney Island hot dog, and Detroit offers some of the best spots for this traditional meal. Lafayette Coney Island and American Coney Island are often considered the best, so you might want to try both!

If you get sick of hot dogs, take your Detroit car rental over to Slows Bar B Q, where meat is always perfectly cooked and seasoned, and sides are about as comforting as food can get. With mac-n-cheese, fries and applesauce also on the menu, Slows is sure to please all.

Detroit may be the automotive industry’s world headquarters – and home to big businesses like Quicken Loans, American Axle & Manufacturing, DTE Energy, OnStar, Ernst & Young, and HP Enterprise Services, but this unique Midwestern city is also an exciting destination filled with history, family-friendly fun and awe-inspiring sites.
