No trip to Detroit is complete without a visit to the Henry Ford, which remains the most popular attraction in Michigan. The sprawling indoor-outdoor complex in the suburb of Dearborn is split into three main sites: The Henry Ford Museumitself (showcasing Ford’s eclectic personal collection of historic memorabilia, including the limousine in which JFK was assassinated and the bus on which Rosa Parks refused to relinquish her seat); Greenfield Village (a large selection of historic buildings, reconstructed in a “village” environment to showcase how Americans have lived since the founding of the country); and the Ford Rouge Factory Tour (an interactive, behind the scenes look at state-of-the-art car manufacturing, which still happens here today).
