Midwest Majesty & Archipelagos of Georgian Bay Itinerary
Day 1 Embarkation in Detroit, Michigan
Departing from Detroit, Michigan, arrive early to explore America's Motor City. Named for the narrow "straight" (French: détroit) that connects Lake Erie with Lake St Clair, Detroit has long held strategic value for the economy of Great Lakes cultures. By the 19th century, Detroit was home to major manufacturing industries, who mined raw materials and shipped their goods east. In 1903, Henry Ford funded the first motor company and Detroit became home to nearly 125 auto companies, earning it the name Motor City.
