Detroit
Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Attractions like Maumee Bay State Park and Lakeview Park make great kid-friendly stops. The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Detroit: Cedar Point (in Sandusky) and Great Lakes Crossing Outlets (in Auburn Hills). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, stop by Polish Art Center, and contemplate the long history of Motown Museum.
