Detroit
Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
You'll explore and learn at Liberty Aviation Museum and Merry-Go-Round Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad and Fort Gratiot Lighthouse. Venture out of the city with trips to Great Lakes National Cemetery (in Holly), Toledo (National Museum of the Great Lakes & Imagination Station) and Put in Bay (South Bass Island & Put In Bay Winery). And it doesn't end there: stroll the grounds of Johnson's Island Confederate Cemetery, steep yourself in history at Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, and admire the natural beauty at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Detroit itinerary builder.

September in Detroit sees daily highs of 74°F and lows of 56°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
