Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Step out of the city life by going to Island Lake State Recreation Area and Elizabeth Park. Relax by the water at Main Street Beach and Lakeview Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Detroit: Thomas Edison Birthplace (in Milan), Vermilion River Reservation (in Vermilion) and Sheldon Marsh State Nature Preserve (in Huron). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, identify plant and animal life at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark, see the interesting displays at Merry-Go-Round Museum, and take a stroll through Campus Martius Park.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Detroit using our trip planner.

In August, daily temperatures in Detroit can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
