Hi. My husband and I (age 55) will be doing a first time Michigan trip in early Jun, from Missouri. Will be spending the weekend at Mackinac Island, traveling up to Paradise (Falls and Great Lakes Museum, staying one night at the lighthouse crew quarters), then traveling down to Detroit (for Greenfield Village, etc). We love quaint, scenic wineries, history, flowers/gardens, nature, and good restaurants.
1. Any suggestions for a side trip between Mackinac and Detroit? We have just one extra day/night to spend there. Thinking about visiting Holland, is it worth the drive? Any other places that would be recommended versus Holland, for an overnight stop?
2. Not sure where to stay in Detroit, do you have any neighborhood suggestions? Doesn't need to be too close to Dearborn, just would like to get a nice Detroit experience, with some scenery and restaurants. Any suggestions for other must see things in Detroit while we are there?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
