Summer Day Trips in the Detroit Area

Summertime is the right time to go exploring the wonders that lie near the Detroit, MI, area. And for those who want to trek beyond the suburban sights of Sterling Heights, Clinton Township, and Macomb, MI our fleet of new Lincoln cars provide smooth, stylist and spacious rides in air-conditioned comfort for your next trip. Here are just a few ideas for road trip destinations for families, couples, and explorers of every ilk, all under three hours from Detroit.

For a stunning mix of nature, art, and history, load up the Lincoln MKC and head to Saugatuck, MI. This beloved Lake Michigan beach town has a little something for everyone. Quaint, cute, and loaded with bed and breakfasts, it plays host to popular museums, music festivals, and tasty eateries. It’s also home to the miles of beachfront beauty at Saugatuck Dunes State Park and the camping and skiing hotspot of Allegan State Game Area.

If the family passports are up to date, take the pack southeast and across the border to Point Pelle National Park in Ontario. Besides the thrill of leaving the country and finding authentic poutine, Point Pelle is ripe with sandy beaches, hiking trails for nature enthusiasts, and scenic marshes for canoeing. If there are any ornithologists in the family, it’s also a renowned spot for bird watching.

Do waterfalls, caves and rolling hills appeal to your adventurous side? Then Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a must visit destination. There are endless treasures along the Towpath Trail, which follows the historic route of the Ohio and Erie Canal, and you may bump into woodland critters such as minks, peregrine falcons, river otters, bald eagles and opossums.
