Things to do in SE Michigan

In a month or two, our family would like to take a road trip to SE Michigan. We would like to stay a couple days. We are interested in seeing the Henry Ford Museum. We like museums, a little nature, and sight seeing. We are coming up from SW Ohio to the Ann Arbor/Adrian area to look at a tractor, and making a vacation out of it. We don't want to travel too far away from there, but a little drive wouldn't hurt for a good tourist destination.

There are several small, but good museums on the campus of University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in addition to a botanical garden and arboretum. Here's a complete listing:


Once you have dates for your visit, you can check what events are happening in Ann Arbor here:


Greenfield Village (which is located on the same grounds as The Henry Ford Museum) is worth a tour too.

Since you'll be in Dearborn for the Henry Ford and like museums I'd suggest the National Arab American Museum. It is a beautiful collection and really educational.

If you like art, the Detroit Institute of Art is well worth a visit--I keep being surprised by the collection and how pleasant the building is.

Nature destinations are a little harder to pinpoint. Are you looking to hike, canoe, bike...or what? That would help pinpoint a few locations.
