Everything to Know about finding apartments for rent in Detroit, MI

It may be called The Motor City, but Detroit has grown up and out in recent years, moving beyond its legendary automotive history. While the city has seen its fair share of ups and downs, today you'll find a bustling downtown where entrepreneurs are reinvigorating this quintessential American city. Home to the legendary Motown sound, Detroit also boasts stunning architecture, world-class museums and galleries, and cuisine ranging from hot dogs and food trucks to upmarket eateries and microbreweries. It’s a varied town, so begin your search for apartments for rent in Detroit today.


With a climate that's largely influenced by the Great Lakes, Detroit winters see freezing temperatures and snowfall from November through April. Expect pleasant weather in the spring and summertime, perfect for enjoying outdoor activities and attractions.


Detroit's impressive skyline showcases art deco skyscrapers, including the Historic Guardian Building, a 36-story tower covered with tile, limestone and terracotta brickwork. The city is home to a sizable collection of late 19th- and early 20th-century architecture, among the largest in the nation. Throughout the city, you'll find picturesque Old World-, English Tudor-, Queen Anne- and Georgian-style properties. As more of these properties are restored, there is an increase in available apartments in Detroit within prime locations.


While the city has many interesting neighborhoods, these are our top picks as you look for your next apartment:

  • Entertainment District: Home to Ford Field, Comerica Park and live music venues, the Entertainment District is perfect for younger crowds and sports fans.
  • Eastern Market: This commercial district covers 43 acres and sells produce, meat and spices from 150 farmers and vendors. Don't miss special events, celebrity chefs, cooking demonstrations and bike tours in this vibrant neighborhood.
  • Midtown: Home to art galleries, eclectic shops and foodie favorites, Midtown is a thriving cultural hub.
  • Rivertown: Outdoor enthusiasts love the scenic trails winding through Rivertown, the ideal setting for walking and biking along the Detroit River.
  • Corktown: On the National Register of Historic Places, Corktown is the oldest standing neighborhood in Detroit and home to dive bars, record stores and tasting rooms.


The DDOT bus system provides widespread transportation throughout the city, while the People Mover rail, QLINE streetcar and MoGo bike share program offer alternative modes of travel.


The stunning Detroit Riverwalk stretches more than five miles along the Detroit River and is a must for enjoying outdoor concerts, taking bike rides and visiting trendy shops. In the summer, head to the "beach" at Campus Martius Park, home to a 400,000-pound sandpit in the middle of downtown Detroit, where urban beachgoers can barbecue, sunbathe and unwind.


Head to Ford Field to watch the Detroit Lions go head-to-head with their NFL competition, or stop by Little Caesars Arena to catch a Detroit Red Wings hockey game.


There's plenty of activities for kids, from Belle Isle Aquarium, the oldest in the U.S., to Detroit Zoo, with over 2,000 animals on display. Students in the area are well-served by highly-ranked schools in the Detroit Public School system like Renaissance High School and Moses Field School.


For an ideal getaway on Lake Michigan, head to Grand Haven State Park Beach, which features sandy beaches, a delightful boardwalk and picturesque lighthouse. If you're looking for something closer to home, Belle Isle Beach, on the Detroit River and dubbed by the locals as the "hipster" beach, is a go-to spot for younger crowds, complete with a rope swing for entertainment.
