Exploring The Great Lakes Region Some of North America’s most stunning natural land marks, the Great Lakes are truly a sight to behold. Not only are these massive bodies of water impressive in their own right, but so too are the many cities that reside near their shores. Before you set off, remember to pack some car snacks, make a groovy road trip playlist, and give your car a routine maintenance check (check for chips in the car glass, check the oil level, fill up the tires, etc.). And don’t forget a map!
Minneapolis - Saint Paul
Canada’s largest city is also home to one of the largest zoos in the world. Over 491 species reside within its gates, including a rare breed of white lions!
The Twin cities are a major arts/culture hub. During your pit-stop, see some sketch comedy at Brave New Workshop . Or, treat yourself to a concert by the Minnesota Orchestra.
On your visit to the windy city, consider a taste of some authentic deep-dish pizza just as important as visiting the Museum of Science and Industry and riding to the top of the Willis Tower.
Detroit may be affectionately nicknamed ‘Rock City’, but jazz is really the city’s finest music genre. Make sure to visit Cliff Bell’s jazz club while you’re there.
Cleveland is a big sports city, and there’s nothing quite like watching the Indians play at Progressive Field on a sunny day!
