The Cruise starts one mile north of Detroit in Ferndale, MI and goes up to Pontiac, MI, and back. About 10 miles each way, it has several high profile cruise areas, most popular at 9 Mile & Woodward.

No fee to drive in the Woodward Dream Cruise, no admission charge to watch it. Anyone can cruise but those not driving a classic car must stay out of the two right lanes (curb side). Woodward Ave is generally eight lanes wide, four lanes in each direction divided by a median or turn lane.

Cool Facts: Woodward Avenue (M-1) was the first concrete roadway in the country. It is listed as an Automotive Heritage Trail (an All-American Road), plus a Michigan Heritage Route.
