Detroit

Detroit lies on the Detroit River which connects Lakes Eerie and St. Clair.

Across the river is the Canadian town of Windsor, reached through the tunnel west of the Renaissance Center, or by the Ambassador Bridge.

Detroit is not as bad as some reports make out, but it has seen better days.

The Renaissance Center, on the river, was built to help revitalise the centre of Detroit. The multipurpose complex has space for shops, offices, theatres, and hotels.

GM Renaissance Center:
A world of fashion, specialty stores, restaurants and business offices are located in the Renaissance Center along with a Marriott Hotel. GM World features a collection of General Motors' automobiles from the past to the present and on to the future.

Soaring 73 floors above the Detroit River, the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center is a premier city centre hotel that rises to meet the needs of business, leisure and meeting guests alike.

The hotel's location in the GM Renaissance Center provides guests with easy access to a variety of shops, restaurants and services.

Its convenient connection to major downtown attractions by the city's 'People Mover' public transportation system makes it an ideal location for Detroit-based meetings and events.

Dramatic views highlight guest rooms that are elegantly styled in warm, jewel tones and equipped with business-friendly features like high-speed Internet access.

Dining at the hotel's RiverCafe offers something for everyone in a contemporary atmosphere overlooking the Detroit River and Windsor, Canada.

Other features include the GM Wintergarden, with a variety of restaurants and retail outlets.

The Great Lakes

Soo Locks Boat Tours:
Ships travelling from Lake Superior to Lake Huron drop 21 feet in the canal locks at Sault Ste. Marie, northern Michigan. Tour boats also allow visitors the chance to experience the drop.

Lansing

The capital of Michigan often gets missed by most visitors to the state, as it's not on the coastal route.

In the 1840s a group of New York families came here to claim the land they had purchased, only to find it didn't exist.

The area was occupied by the Chippewa people but the disillusioned families remained, and named the new settlement after their former home in New York.
