As far as Michigan goes, there’s more to do there than you might think. Detroit, in particular, has dozens of museums, art, and history than anywhere else in the Wolverine State. A mere lake-breadth away from Canada, Detroit has a rich history from its ties to the automobile industry to being the birthplace of Motown.

You’ll never run out of things to do in Detroit.
