Get in[edit]

From the Airport[edit]

Wyandotte is just a short drive from the Detroit Metro Airport. Take Middlebelt road to Northline, and head east on Northline for about 15 minutes.

From Downtown[edit]

The easiest way to get from downtown Detroit to downtown Wyandotte is to take I-75 south to Southfield Rd., then take Southfield Rd. east to W. Jefferson. Finally, follow W. Jefferson south until it becomes Biddle and takes you through the heart of Wyandotte.

From the North[edit]

Depending on whichever is closest, take I-75 south, I-275 south, or Southfield Freeway (M-39) south. If taking I-75, exit at Southfield Rd. and head east until it terminates at the Detroit river. If taking Southfield Freeway, go until it becomes Southfield Rd. and do the same. When you hit the river, go south on West Jefferson until you are in the heart of downtown Wyandotte.

If I-275 south is closer, take it and exit at Eureka Rd. Go east on Eureka until you hit downtown Wyandotte (about 20 minutes).

From the West[edit]

Take I-94 east and exit Middlebelt. Take Middlebelt road south to Northline, and head east on Northline for about 15 minutes.

From Ohio[edit]

Take I-75 north and exit Fort St. Turn right on Eureka Rd. and continue until you hit downtown Wyandotte.

Get around[edit]

Downtown is easily walkable, as it's only a few blocks long. Busses come right down Biddle and stop in downtown. To get anywhere else, you'll probably need a car or a bicycle, although walking is always an option. On the 3rd Friday of each month, you can get free trolley rides around the downtown area.
