The Motor City

Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.

Keep things going the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Florian Catholic Church, then put a fun spin on your tour with Decode Ann Arbor, then don't miss a visit to University of Michigan, and finally explore the engaging exhibits at Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.
