Travel to Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor, a university town of 110,000 people, is located 40 miles (60km) west of Detroit along the banks of the Huron River. Regularly listed among the best places to live in the US, Ann Arbor's cosmopolitan ambiance is matched only by its classic, small town charm.

The newly remodeled Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), a 30 minute drive from Ann Arbor, welcomes nonstop flights from more than 60 cities in the US and dozens of international destinations.

From the airport, take a shuttle (from US$45.00) or a taxi (US$50.00-60.00) to Ann Arbor. Below is the driving direction from Detroit Metro Airport to downtown Ann Arbor:

  • Take I-94 West towards Chicago.
  • Take Exit 177 (State Street).
  • Turn right onto S. State Street, which will take you straight into downtown Ann Arbor.
