East Lansing

— 2 nights
East Lansing is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan directly east of Lansing, the state capital. Change things up with these side-trips from East Lansing: Rusty Wallace Racing Experience (in Brooklyn) and Falling Waters Trail (in Jackson). There's much more to do: deepen your understanding at Michigan State University, don't miss a visit to Saper Galleries and Custom Framing, engage your brain at Impression 5 Science Center, and look for gifts at Horrocks Farm Market.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the East Lansing holiday builder app.

Detroit to East Lansing is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. Traveling from Detroit in September, East Lansing is little chillier at night with lows of 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) early enough to drive to Detroit.

Detroit

— 5 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ann Arbor (Kerrytown & University of Michigan). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, head off the coast to Belle Isle Park, admire the striking features of The Guardian Building, and steep yourself in history at The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Detroit attractions planner.
