Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Kids will enjoy Cedar Point and African Safari Wildlife Park. Get out of town with these interesting Detroit side-trips: Kalahari Waterparks (in Sandusky), Bronner's Christmas Wonderland (in Frankenmuth) and Toledo (Toledo Zoo & Toledo Museum of Art). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, admire the landmark architecture of The Guardian Building, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Detroit Zoo, and steep yourself in history at The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.

For ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Detroit route planner.

In October, daytime highs in Detroit are 63°F, while nighttime lows are 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
