Follow the water on this journey along the Great Lakes of Michigan. Start in the area around Detroit, a place of great innovation and rich history, where America’s legacy of music, Motown, and machinery all took their first steps. It is the perfect launching point for discovery as you embark along the waterways that have defined the nation. You’ll visit shipwrecks, lighthouses, and waterfalls, while enjoying Michiganian hospitality along the way, from the home of the iconic Ford family to ancestral inns that have been housing visitors for generations. Take photos of incredible natural treasures, from lakeshore beaches, cliffs, and natural springs to the Black Rocks of Presque Isle. Explore villages and cities to feel the way they impacted the very soul of the Wolverine State, and do it all with sparkling water on the horizon.

At Greenfield Village experience firsthand the sights, sounds and sensations of America’s fascinating formation, where over 80 acres brim with resourcefulness and ingenuity. Step foot in the lab where Thomas Edison had his lightbulb moment, or the workshop where the Wright brothers taught us to reach for the sky. Tonight, enjoy a welcome dinner at Ford’s Garage for the most delicious prime burgers and America’s comfort food.
