My wife and I are planning a trip to the Great Lakes region in August for 3 weeks. We have identified a few places that we want to visit but would appreciate some advice on ways to fill out the trip. So far our trip is shaping up like this:
3 nights in Chicago
Travel through Northern Indiana visiting Amish Country
Indiana State Fair Indianapolis
Detroit (Henry Ford Museum)
Niagra falls (2 nights)
In terms of interests we like a mixture of scenic drives, like to experience rural side of America perhaps stay in small but vibrant local towns. In previous roadtrips we have really enjoyed local fairs, festivals and particularly any with music. Have planned to stop by the Indiana State fair, any others, perhaps smaller local festivals?
Would love some advice on Detroit, definitely want to visit Henry ford museum, is there anything else worth considering there?
Any help would be much appreciated,
