This is a sneak preview of our Discover Downriver Bus Tour where we follow the twists and turns of the Huron and Detroit Rivers and uncover the significance these important waterways played in the development of the region south of Detroit known as “Downriver”. Narrated tours recount the region’s exciting social, cultural, military and industrial history and point out Native American landmarks, remnants of the Old Hull corduroy road – one of Michigan’s first roads dating back to the War of 1812, historic homes and buildings, Henry Ford’s former headlight assembly plant, and so much more!
