Plan Your Visit — Arriving to Downtown

Share this:

Santa Claus is standing by. The lights on the tree are almost ready. The entertainment we’ve planned may just be the best yet, as the Downtown Detroit Partnership presents its 20th Annual Tree Lighting on Friday, Nov. 17, and we’re making it Merry and Bright in every way possible. 

That includes helping you plan your visit from start to finish.

Here are a few things you may want to know before you go.

First, several well-lit, convenient parking structures exist around Campus Martius Park and Beacon Park. Find one that fits your route into the city, arrive early, and secure your spot.

There are also parking and transit options that can make your visit more fun and environmentally friendly. Consider parking close to a MoGo station and riding up to Campus Martius Park or parking along the QLine or People Mover to make your entry and exit fun and crowd-free. You might even find a new Detroit spot to visit along the way.

Finally, the DDP has compiled a few more important points, which we have posted on our website

The holidays officially kick off Friday in Detroit with this annual tradition and we hope to see you there!
