1st Day
AM     Drive to Dearborn
PM:    Ford Rouge Assembly Plant Walking Tour
One of the top attractions is the walking tour of the Dearborn Truck Plant, (click for website) where the new military-grade aluminum-alloy-body Ford F-150 truck is made. The elevated walkway, a 1/3 mile journey, provides you with a unique bird’s-eyeview of the plant’s final assembly line. You’ll see first-hand the complex web of equipment, robotics, parts delivery and skilled workers that come together to build one truck per minute at full line speeds–yes, you read that right: onetrucks one a minute.  Note that Admission is $19.00 ($17.50 seniors) and Parking is $6.00.

 2nd Day
AM – early PM:     Ford Museum of American Innovation
A world where past innovations fuel the imagination of generations to come. A vibrant exploration of genius in all its forms, the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation (click for web site) allows you to experience the strides of America’s greatest minds while fully immersing yourself in their stories. Step inside the bus where Rosa Parks took a stand by taking a seat. Play pilot as you explore flight innovations, starting with the Wright brothers’ achievements, or make yourself at home inside Buckminster Fuller’s circular Dymaxion House.  Note that Admission is $25.00 ($22.50 seniors) and Parking is $6.00.

Mid afternoon / early evening:    Drive home
