West Downtown

Historic charm meets exciting new dining, shopping and entertaining venues.

West Downtown

A compact yet full-service downtown for all seasons, West Downtown Dearborn affords plenty of reasons to play, stay or announce a change of address. Year-round events include music concerts, family activities and food festivals. The summer’s popular Dearborn Farmers and Artisans Market brings people together in the community while promoting healthy living and supporting local farmers and entrepreneurs. The landmark Bryant Library and Dearborn History Museum (occupying the 1833 Commandant’s Headquarters of the old Detroit Arsenal) provide a rich layer of heritage. At the east end of West Downtown Dearborn, the new John D. Dingell Transit Center connects intercity Amtrak service with multiple bus, shuttle and taxi services, Detroit Metro Airport and the non-motorized pedestrian network. In Dearborn, it’s easy to feel connected in every sense of the word.
