Journey with us to Dearborn, Michigan, for an exploration of American innovation! Our touring will begin at Greenfield Village, where we can visit the Wright Brothers’ workshop and step into the lab where Edison invented the lightbulb. At the Ford Rouge Factory, we’ll get an inside look at the production of the iconic Ford F-150 before we head to the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation to continue our exploration of the work of America’s most creative minds. Day Four will begin with a guided tour of the GM Renaissance Center—a group of seven interconnected skyscrapers filled with specialty shops, restaurants, offices, and the world headquarters of General Motors. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to view the latest GM vehicles and various automotive displays at GM World. Finally, we will step into the lives of Edsel and Eleanor Ford at their home, followed by a tour of the estate of Matilda Dodge Wilson, whose first husband was the founder of the Dodge automotive company.
