Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
The Henry Ford and Motown Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Maumee Bay State Park and Oak Openings Preserve Metropark. Change things up with these side-trips from Detroit: Toledo (Toledo Zoo, Hollywood Casino Toledo, & more), Great Lakes Crossing Outlets (in Auburn Hills) and Troy Museum and Historic Village (in Troy). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Detroit Institute of Arts, look for gifts at Polish Art Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lakeview Park, and explore and take pictures at Comerica Park.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Detroit trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, Oakland County International Airport, St Clair County International Airport and Bishop International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Detroit are 5°C, while nighttime lows are -1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
