America's Most Family-Friendly Airports: Detroit (DTW)

Vito Palmisano

No. 2 Detroit (DTW)

When it’s time for families to wing it, the Motor City rocks it. Top marks go to Detroit Metro Airport’s McNamara Terminal for its multiple play areas, Henry Ford and Motown stores, and food concessions that include a gourmet peanut butter and jelly sandwich shop. It’s worth noting that our survey was done before the debut of free Wi-Fi (this fall) and the North Terminal’s recently opened Play Port soft-sculpted playground featuring an aircraft and a slide through padded clouds. With all these activities, by the time kids board their flights, their only destination should be la-la land.
