Michigan Mini Guide
How do I get to Michigan?
The easiest way by far is to fly into Detroit International Airport
. Most major airports in Europe have flights with Delta to Detroit including London Heathrow, Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt. Travellers wishing to visit Detroit from other European destinations can connect in Europe before flying on to Detroit or by flying into one of the major US airports such as Chicago
, New York
and connecting from there. There is little difference in the flight time so decisions are usually made on price or intended stopovers.
What is There to do in Michigan?
Michigan is a state that has something for nearly every traveller. Those that love the water will be surprised to learn that it has thousands of miles of coastline around the Great Lakes accompanied by hundreds of beaches where you can relax, barbecue or fish and they rarely get crowded. Detroit is a wonderful city to visit being the home of Motown music and the American car. Museums to both abound in the city. Detroit has many other great things to see and do including having a meal at the top of the Renaissance Centre, the tallest building in the state. The centre is also the home of General Motors. Detroit in Michigan is America’s original ‘Motor City’. Natural wonders are plentiful in the northern peninsula part of the state with mountains crossed by marked trails with designated camp sites, fast flowing rivers and waterfalls such as Porcupine Falls or the rich forests that clad the mountains.
