Round 2 of Day Trip Ideas: Detroit | East Lansing Area Moms

Our jaunt to Grand Rapids area was fun last week, this week, we sharing some fun while traveling southeast.  With a drive time of less than 90 minutes maybe it will be a quiet time for some to nap.

This week: DETROIT (with a fun stop in Auburn Hills)!  There may be enough to do for a couple family outings.  We hope so!

We had a hard time picking one favorite and decided to share a few of our favorites.   Museums, Aquarium, Drive-in Theatre, Science Center, Legos and much, much more.  There is something for everyone.  And some shopping if you are up for it at Great Lakes Crossing.  One. Big. Oval.
