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.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Sun): wander the streets of Greektown, take in the spiritual surroundings of Old St. Mary's Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sweetest Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church, explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, then examine the collection at Arab American National Museum, and finally examine the collection at Greenfield Village.

Warsaw, Poland to Detroit is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Warsaw to Detroit due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Warsaw in September, with highs in Detroit at 28°C and lows at 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can go by car to Traverse City.

Traverse City

Cherry Capital of the World

Traverse City might be well known for its huge cherry industry, but its position along Grand Traverse Bay in Lake Michigan endows it with fine scenery and a wealth of outdoor attractions.
Get some historical perspective at Point Betsie Lighthouse and Charlevoix South Pier Light Station. Museum-lovers will get to explore Dennos Museum Center and Michigan Legacy Art Park. Get out of town with these interesting Traverse City side-trips: Boyne City (Wildwood Rush Zip Line Canopy Tour, Young State Park, &more), Grass River Natural Area (in Bellaire) and Bay Harbor Golf Club (in Petoskey). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Empire Bluff Trail, trek along Dunes Trail, appreciate the extensive heritage of Glen Haven Historical Village, and identify plant and animal life at Carlson's Fishery.

For photos, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Traverse City day trip planning website.

Drive from Detroit to Traverse City in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can travel to Mackinac Island.
