I just heard from my parents that they will be visiting relatives in Southeast Michigan (very close to Toledo, Ohio) the week before my wedding in June. As they will have a few days to kill before arriving for the wedding, and it's only a 5 or 6 hour drive from Southern Michigan to Pittsburgh, my mom asked if there were any interesting things to see and do along the way. Being new to the region and having not really spent anytime in that area I told her that I'd ask some people more knowledgeable than myself.

So now I turn to the Throbbing Brain and ask for any travel tips I could pass on. Are there any train rides, museums, interesting countryside, craft fairs, festivals, anything that an active couple in their early 50's would enjoy seeing?

Thanks

Well, the only thing I know about in that area is Cedar Point - the largest rollercoaster amusement park in America, but I assume they wouldn't want to go there.

Monroe, MI is a nice little city in the southeastern most section of the state. It's the La-z-Boy corporate headquarters. Do your parents apperciate the finery of recliners? ;-) :p

sorry, I'm not much help.

Ask Super Amputee Cat or Bear Up North. They live in that area.

Greenfield village! Solid, wholesome family entertainment and education. Not only can Uncle Charlie make his very own brass candlestick on a lathe built in 1890, but Aunt Darlene will also enjoy the decor while standing in the original Wright Brothers' boyhood parlour.
