Perhaps the biggest attraction in Dearborn is the Henry Ford Museum. It is the nation’s largest indoor-outdoor American history museum, spanning nine acres. Some of America’s greatest inventions and historical pieces await you, including the original camp bed used by George Washington and the aluminum Dymaxion House built in 1945.

Once you’ve explored all there is to offer at the Henry Ford Museum, head over to Greenfield Village to step into America’s past. It isn’t often you get to order lunch from an 1850’s menu. (Don’t worry – the food is fresh!) You can also take a ride in a vintage Model T or steam locomotive.

The Ford Rouge Factory Museum is also deserving of your time. The original Rouge complex was developed between 1917 and 1928 as a way to effectively and continuously produce vehicles. Today, the Ford Rouge Center contains five manufacturing plants and employs about 6,000 people. You can learn the history of this important landmark in the Legacy Theater and see how cars are built in a multisensory show viewed from seats that swivel 360 degrees.
Are you looking to try one of the best burgers of your life? Miller’s has been around since 1941 and boasts world famous ground round hamburgers. This restaurant and bar is also known for their honor system when it comes to your tab. You will never get a physical bill; you just walk up to the bar and tell them what you ate.
