Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field offers tours of the stadium for a behind-the-scenes look. Opened in 2002, the multipurpose stadium hosted Superbowl XL, the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four, as well as many concerts and other large-scale events. The tour takes you to a Ford Field suite and an NFL locker room, and leads you down the tunnel to the field for a chance to stand directly on the turf and view the stadium from a player's perspective.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.

  • I love this place! The games are always more exciting when to come here. So maybe shops and food stands everywhere. If you need a refill, you won't walk more than a couple of steps to the next one. Re...  more »
  • My husband and I come at least 2 times a year to watch our lovely Lions play! We love the experience!  more »
  • Love, love Ford Field. We visit every Thanksgiving holiday right after the parade. Easy to get around and a semi friendly staff. Don't take your big purse. Leave it at home. They check your bags. Also...  more »

  • A large indoor stadium catering to so many more events than just football. The seats are comfy, the place is kept usually clean, the food is good but a bit pricey, and the views, no matter where you sit are good. I love the fact Ford Field is indoors, allowing year-round events to take place within. The temperature is always kept comfy, with the seating locations easy enough to find. An excellent stadium overall.
  • Monster Jam @ Ford Field was much better this year. Traffic monitoring outside was improved, and I didn't see "special lines" for different ticket holders this year. But they still have improvements to make. The people who were supposed to be monitoring the lines in the pit didn't have much backbone and people still cut in line or got in the way of others photo opportunities.
  • I seriously reel like Ford Field is a "home away from home", yes parking prices & food prices stink, but what do you expect? But we have sat from the front row to the roar zone and nomatter what its great. We realized you can see way more (better) higher up. Wonderful place,always friendly staff and always alot going on which i love! Just needs more kid friendly (family) restrooms. Cant wait to see the upgrades
  • This was my first trip to Ford Field and it was definitely a good experience. It gets busy.. but security is quick and friendly. The stadium is beautiful and large.. with lots of bars/food vendors so you don't need to wait too long. Beers/food is pretty standard for stadium concessions. The seats are actually quite roomy. It was a packed house for the Lion's game but it we didn't feel packed in like sardines.
  • I went to a lions vs rams game in 2012 and loved the experience. Last minute game winning TD, Stafford to Kevin Smith. I also went to my high school's football championship here! Great venue!
