East Lansing — 1 night

East Lansing is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan directly east of Lansing, the state capital. Kick off your visit on the 10th (Sun): look for gifts at Horrocks Farm Market, take an in-depth tour of Michigan History Center, and then deepen your understanding at Michigan State University. Here are some ideas for day two: get a sense of history and politics at Michigan State Capitol and then learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Potter Park Zoo.

Take the guesswork out of planning a East Lansing vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Detroit — 4 nights

Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Take a break from Detroit with a short trip to Morley Candy Makers - The Home of Sanders Candy in Clinton Township, about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Detroit Institute of Arts, step off the mainland to explore Belle Isle Park, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Detroit Zoo, and contemplate the long history of The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.

To find photos, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Detroit trip itinerary maker website.

Drive from East Lansing to Detroit in 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 82°F in July, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to catch the flight back home.
