    Check out the post "Round trip from Wisconsin to Maine" for suggestions.

    In the Detroit Institute of Art, you'll find a huge 4 walls artwork by Diego Riviera on the topic of automotive industry (locate the red car). It's worth the 4$ entrance fee if you're an art lover, plus it's a very nice museum to visit, lots of great artwork pieces.

    In Nova Scotia you definitly should do the Cabot Trail and visit Cape Breton.

    In Maine, if you like hiking, Mt Katahdin is worth the detour (Knife Edge) but be ready to be at the gate at 4 a.m. because I think they only allow 50 people per day. Then you could come back through the White Mountains (NH)...

    Have a great trip!

    Gen:-)
