Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Somerset Collection and Eastern Market. Get some cultural insight at Put-in-Bay Winery and Greenfield Village. Change things up with these side-trips from Detroit: Ann Arbor (Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Kerrytown), Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (in Oak Harbor) and Lakeview Park (in Lorain). There's much more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Maumee Bay State Park, explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, buy something for everyone on your list at The Mall at Partridge Creek, and steep yourself in history at The 577 Foundation.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Detroit road trip planner .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, Oakland County International Airport and Bishop International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Detroit can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
