Welcome to Downtown Wayne!
Wayne, Michigan is a hidden gem in the western suburbs of Detroit. Conveniently located between Detroit and Ann Arbor on US 12/Michigan Avenue just north of Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Wayne is in the middle of all the action. With a population of 17,000, this 6 square mile city is a small historic town rooted in tradition and community. Recreational access to the Rouge River, unique businesses, and small-town charm make our downtown a great place to live, work, and play.
Downtown Wayne is working towards becoming the heart of community activity once again. Visitors may find themselves in many of our retail establishments including our men’s and women’s boutiques, artisan market shop, jewelry store, and more. Professional businesses such as tax service companies, banks, doctor offices, and a career training school also call downtown home, helping one meet all of their needs in just one visit. The area attracts local residents through special events that involve both the community and local business owners. Whether it’s launching a canoe in the Rouge River at Goudy Park, doing your holiday shopping on Small Business Saturday, picking up your groceries at the farmer’s market, or watching your favorite local band perform during the summer concert series, there’s always something happening in downtown Wayne.
