(please refer to Parking Information page for locations of structures)
I-94/Westbound I-94/ Eastbound I-96, Northbound I-75, Southbound I-75 and I-10 South:
Take your selected freeway toward downtown. You will see signs for M-10 (towards the Civic Center), also called the Lodge Freeway. The easiest and fastest way is to stay on your freeway until you get to the Lodge Freeway (I-10 South). Follow the M-10 south signs and continue on M-10 South towards Jefferson East. As you come out from under COBO Hall, you will pass the intersection for Woodward on your left and Hart Plaza on your right. Immediately after Woodward, turn right on Bates Street. If you have reached the tunnel to Canada, you have gone too far! At the corner of Bates and Atwater, you will see the Miller parking garage on the left. To get to the boat from the parking garage exit the parking ramp towards the riverfront and walk along the Riverwalk towards COBO hall.
Parking is now validated at the Princess. Simply park at the Miller garage and proceed to the boat on foot. As you are leaving the boat, after the cruise, there will be an employee handing out validation passes for the Miller garage. The Miller garage is the only parking location for which the Detroit Princess offers parking validation.
