The Henry Ford + Greenfield Village

The Henry Ford is one of metro Detroit’s most popular travel destinations. It’s open for family fun inside (the museum) and out (Greenfield Village).

Did you know there’s a MARVEL character (and artist) from Dearborn?

Make A Splash At The Park

Cool down at one of the three spray pads in Dearborn and check out the park features at Crowley, Hemlock and Whitmore Bolles Parks. Ford Woods  and Ten Eyck Pools are open daily too.

The Ford House

Fair Lane was the home of Clara and Henry Ford. The gardens and grounds are open to the public and a picture perfect place for a picnic, play date or nature walk – it’s also FREE!

The Arab American National Museum is currently closed to the public but they virtual events, including online English-Arabic stoytimes. Indulge in delicious Middle Eastern food (check out this restaurant directory) and pick up sweets (including baklava) from Shatila.
