The Best Downtown Detroit Parking


Date Posted:

We all know parking can be a hassle, especially when you travel to a big city like Detroit and options exist all around you — as well as the other people and vehicles vying for the same spots as you. But with the help of our abundance of parking lots and garages, as well as the ability to book parking spaces ahead of time, you will have less of a headache and more of the ability to focus on why you came to town in the first place.

When the COVID-19 pandemic took over all our live and businesses, Park Rite viewed it as an opportunity to create a zero-contact payment system at every one of our locations in Detroit. This system, announced in May, requires no phone app nor any signage. All you do is follow the on-site instructions and pay by text. It’s that seamless and simple, and most of all, it’s safe.

Downtown Detroit boasts a plethora of activities and destinations to do on an annual basis. Food is and has always been a big part of the city. If you and your friends are brunch fans, the Dime Store is a short walk away from one of our secure lots. Lunch places are aplenty, including Punch Bowl Social, Firebird Tavern, Wahlburgers, Basement Burger Bar or Standby. Grab some scrumptious sweets at Astoria Pastry Shop if that fits your mood.

It doesn’t have to be about food, though. Other sites, like the Motown Museum, offer a visceral experience. This museum in particular shows residents and visitors alike how the Motown scene started and essentially changed the course of popular music forever. You can take a guided tour, or just venture around the lobby on your lonesome, of the famed Fisher Building — one the city’s first major architectural achievements. Speaking of architecture, you would be remiss to never step foot inside the Masonic Temple — where concerts, events and tours offer a real feeling of lore and history. The Guardian Building is another landmark skyscraper that offers views upon views, with visitors inhaling the Art Deco style with amazement.

As always, stay ahead of everyone else by utilizing Park Rite’s partnership with ParkWhiz. The downloadable smartphone app keeps you on your game and others on their toes, giving you the advantage to simply pull into a predetermined parking space and swiftly get on with your activities. This service works at any our Detroit-based parking locations and is a must for those who hate waiting to park. Take advantage of it!
