Why go on a Michigan Tour?
Surfing beaches, sandstone cliffs, forests, museums, nightclubs, and hip restaurants all define Michigan. Surrounded by the Great Lakes, you will find miles of beaches to enjoy in this state. Outdoor activities are popular ways to pass time: from biking, boating, camping and fishing, to skiing and snowmobiling. In Pontiac, the Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum contains artifacts such as maps, postcards, photos, and murals from ‘The Mother Road.’ The University of Michigan, one of the top universities in the world, is located in Ann Arbor. The graffiti-clad city of Detroit is always bustling with things to do. From the Motown museum, the Henry Ford Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the popular Greektown district, sports games, markets, and the many festivals taking place, this vibrant metropolitan area is home to many attractions. Michigan (aka “Motor City”) is in the process of being revitalized; several new hotels, galleries, restaurants, and shopping spaces are being created to attract visitors. Detroit also has a strong musical background. It was the backdrop of Berry Gordy Jr.’s Motown movement, and is the hometown of Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, and Madonna.
