Visiting

It’s been said that there are few Metro Detroit intersections more happening than Woodward and Nine Mile—and we couldn’t agree more. Whether you’re downtown, on the eastside, or along the 8 Mile corridor, Ferndale is home to a truly unique blend of dining, shopping, and nightlife. 

One thing you won’t find in Ferndale is run-of-the-mill fare. Ferndale’s restaurants have been featured on several "Best of Metro Detroit lists," not to mention the Food Network's Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. We’ve got meaderies, craft breweries, and nighttime hot spots. Our shops sell vintage vinyl, specialty cosmetics, one-of-a-kind items for babies and kids, handcrafted Detroit wares, and more. And our special events—the Woodward Dream Cruise, Funky Ferndale, and Ferndale Pride, to name a few—attract visitors local, regional, and beyond.  

Whatever brings you to Ferndale, we hope you enjoy your visit and plan to return soon!
