Destination: ​Woodward Ave.

One of the most iconic roads in Michigan and indeed one of the world’s most familiar byways. Woodward Avenue begins in the heart of downtown Detroit at the foot of the Detroit River. From Jefferson Ave. Woodward, named after​ Augustus B Woodward​, the first chief justice of Michigan prior to statehood when Michigan was a part of the Northwest Territory of the United States. Woodward Ave stretches north-northwest through the city and into Detroit’s northern suburbs all the way to Pontiac.
