Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Henry Ford and Motown Museum. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant and The 577 Foundation will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to W.W. Knight Nature Preserve (in Perrysburg), Great Blue Heron Rookery (in Shelby Township) and Toledo (Toledo Museum of Art & Oak Openings Preserve Metropark). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Greenfield Village, tour the pleasant surroundings at Paint Creek Trail, walk around Belle Isle Park, and enjoy the sea views from Marblehead Lighthouse State Park.

To find where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Detroit journey planner.

Expect a daytime high around 63°F in October, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
