If you are a frequent flyer chances are you have, at some stage, been stuck in an airport waiting for a delayed flight. Even the not-so-seasoned traveler these days finds themselves with a long stopover for one reason or another and, unless you are happy to while away the time people watching, it can be very tedious. So read on and find some great things to do within the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport vicinity that will help you to pass the time while not venturing too far from your onward flight.



Lakes of Taylor Golf Club


Many a business traveler would love to exchange time spent in the air for time spent on the golf course, so what better way to stretch your legs, get some fresh air and tick another course off your wish list in between flights than with a relaxing game of golf. A mere 15 minutes by car from the airport, Lakes of Taylor Golf Club offers 18 holes covering over 7000 yards of undulating greens and spectacular dining facilities. So book your tee time before you leave so that you are not left twiddling your thumbs on yet another long stopover.



Wayne Bowling and Recreation


There’s nothing worse than arriving at an airport after a long flight, with family in tow only to discover that your connecting flight has been delayed. For some great family entertainment you could catch a cab for the 20 minute ride to Wayne Bowling and Recreation. With 40 lanes available as well as a full bar, snack bar and pro shop, there should be something to keep everyone happy until it’s time to head back to the airport in time for your onward journey.



Oakwoods Metropark Nature Center


If you just want to get out and into nature for a bit of respite from the recycled air and continual humdrum associated with air travel, why not climb in a taxi for the 20 minute trip to Oakwoods Metropark Nature Center. There is fun for all the out-door loving types from children’s activities to gentle strolls alongside the Huron and Clinton rivers. This easily accessible nature centre would be a great place to relax and refresh before heading back for your connecting flight.



Leonardo’s Italian Grille


If you are looking for somewhere to eat away from the airport why not head off to Leonardo’s Italian Grill where they believe that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a great Italian meal!” This well established and reviewed restaurant is a little over 5 minutes drive from the airport and offers delicious food at affordable prices. Having eaten your fill you can make your way back to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport knowing that you have plenty of time to make it to your departure gate on time.


With a bevy of eateries and entertainment venues nearby there is no need to feel frustrated by a long stop over or delayed flight. Look at the ground transportation options that IHateTaxis.com recommends to get you there and back in good time.

 

Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum

If you are an aviation buff, consider renting a car and driving to Wapakoneta, Ohio (an easy drive), to visit the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum - and some other aviation sites along the way. Wapakoneta is the birthplace of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on the moon. The Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum is one of fifteen aviation-related sites in the federally designated National Aviation Heritage Area. We have more on the museum on our AXV Neil Armstrong Airport guide (however, unless you own a private plane, you'll need to rent a car and drive to Wapakoneta, where the museum is located).
