I am transferring at DTW and have about 3 hours there. What is the best spot I can take pictures? I know there is a nice one on the roof of parking house, but may I get out of the airport, get to the roof, take a few pictures and safely board my plane in the span of 3 hours? Does anybody have that kind of experience? Thanks, Yari.

With no ride and only three hours you are pretty much limited to the parking garage at the McNamara Terminal for east side (runway 3/21) of the field, or the ramps at either end of the terminal on the ticket counter level. If you transfer thru the North Terminal your only option is the parking garage there, with the top level reserved for employee parking. It's a looooooong walk between terminals, no idea if/when using about a shuttle bus between terminals. If you do have a ride, I can provide more details. Here's a link for you to check out.

Thanks DJR107 for the advice. I am coming and going from McNamara Terminal, so I may use that 3 hours to get to that roof and take a few pictures. Depend on the weather also.
Thanks, Yari.
