Natural Awakenings of Greater Ann Arbor & Detroit / Wayne County Michigan

Built in Detroit: The 1800’s Boomtown Tour

A century before the “Big Three” referred to Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, Detroit’s original big three were ships, stoves and railroad cars, manufactured by the thousands in the pre-automotive Motor City. Detroit History Tours will lead guided tours on January 4 to peruse period playgrounds, homes and factories of the era, sample iconic Detroit tastes and enjoy a drink in a storied railroad location.

The luxury motor-coach leaves promptly at 6:30 pm from Eastern Market (2934 Russell Street) The bus will embark near Shed Three. Boarding starts at 6:15 p.m. Because drinking and swearing come with the history, evening bus tours are restricted to 21 years old and older. Group tours are available.
