A Great Lake, a national park, an international wildlife refuge, a port, a former navy air base, a historic home belonging to America’s most controversial military figure, a historically progressive convent, and more – all in one day!

Join us as we journey down the Old Hull Highway (Jefferson Avenue), Michigan’s first road, and traverse a historic trail from Wyandotte to Monroe where our guides will recount the vibrant cultural, agricultural, industrial and military history of this region.

A couple of cuties we’ll see at Gibraltar Bay Alpacas

Rich in natural resources, this region became a hotbed for industries producing steel, ships, chemicals, power and even furniture.

Tourgoers will see how smokestacks of the 19th and 20th centuries have given way to greenways featuring miles of hiking and biking trails, wetlands, waterfowl nesting colonies and one of the best spots in eastern North America to see the autumn migration of over two dozen species of raptors such as eagles, kites, falcons, owls and vultures. We’ll even see an innovative vegetable garden cultivated with reclaimed steam on top of a forging factory!
