Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Yates Cider Mill and DNR Outdoor Adventure Center. Explore hidden gems such as Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and Edsel & Eleanor Ford House. Change things up with these side-trips from Detroit: Perrysburg (Perrysburg Area Historic Museum, Fort Meigs Ohio's War of 1812 Battlefield, & more), Kellogg Park (in Plymouth) and Sauder Village (in Archbold). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Old St. Mary's Church, brush up on your military savvy at Liberty Aviation Museum, see the interesting displays at Greenfield Village, and steep yourself in history at Providence Metropark.
