"Tree Lined Wide Thoroughfare"

Washington Blvd is a wide street, as the title suggests, it is tree lined. It begins at Jefferson Avenue, and ends at Park Avenue. It is one of the major thoroghfares of Downtown Detroit.

Cobo Hall, which is the main convention center in Detroit is located right at the corner of Jefferson and Washington, because of this many business people who come to Detroit for conventions stay at nearby hotels on Washington, which include the Sheraton, and the Holiday Inn, soon to be added to these will be the historic Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, which is architecturally gorgeous.

You will notice a significant amount of seniors walking around the area, this is due to the fact that there are many senior apartment complexes located on the street or in the direct vicinity.

Retail is almost non existent, there are a few places to eat, but these are mostly Coney Island themed restaurants, which is ever so popular here in Detroit.

Public transportation is good, many of the Detroit city buses stop at nearby Capitol Park.
