I will be flying to the US for the first time next week. My final destination is Detroit (DTW airport), where I will have to wait for 6 hours before my friend comes in on another flight.

I will have 2 heavy baggages and a backpack. What can I do for 6 hours near the DTW airport, with all the heavy luggage I'm carrying? Suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Detroit? Not a darned thing. – CGCampbell Aug 13 '15 at 12:20
  • Wait it out. Not a lot to do there. – Prometheus Aug 13 '15 at 13:30

    Agreed. The area near DTW is basically semi-rural & largely residential. Moreover, DTW (like many USA airports) doesn't appear to have any luggage storage facilities. You're probably best off bringing a book and/or a DVD. – Michael Seifert Aug 13 '15 at 14:23

    It's a little unclear to me what your plan is. Will you and your friend be touring Detroit together? How would you be getting around; could the friend meet you downtown somewhere instead of at the airport? For instance, the Henry Ford Museum is not far from the airport, but if that's something you'd planned to visit together, it wouldn't make sense for you to go alone, especially dragging your luggage around. – choster Aug 13 '15 at 15:42
  • Are you clearing customs in Detroit or somewhere else first? If your arrival into Detroit is domestic (i.e. you enter the U.S. somewhere else first,) you could sit and watch the water fountain in the terminal. - haha – reirab Aug 13 '15 at 21:48
