    So we have finally booked all our hotels in the USA and figured out our route. I have to say, the US get more and more expensive from year to year.

    We will fly into Detroit and from there we will go to Toronto and the Niagara Falls in Canada. Back in the US we will visit Cleveland, Cedar Point and Columbus OH. In Ohio will spend most of the time with friends. On our way back to Detroit we will stop in Ann Arbor and Dearborn to see the Henry Ford Museum. Before flying back to Europe we will stay at the MGM Grand Detroit and lose our last Dollars at the Casino.

    All in all we will be for nearly three weeks in the US.

    Sounds like a really fun trip! I visited Niagara Falls a few times as a kid and always enjoyed it; the boats and caves that take you right up to the falls are a lot of fun

    Cedar Point is definitely a must-do for coaster fans. Hopefully the crowds won't be too bad when you're there, but it's probably hard to avoid in the summer

    I've never done the Henry Ford Museum myself, but I've heard it has a lot of EPCOT (city, not park) qualities to it, and is really fascinating. I've read some stuff on Ford recently, and he seems like a very interesting (if somewhat unusual) person, and probably would have gotten along well with Walt, though they had slightly different approaches

    We will be in Michigan next month. But way up on the NW side of the mitten.
    Sounds like so much fun. Hope it goes without a hitch.

    We have already been to Cedar Point twice and always enjoyed it a lot. We will be there during the first Halloween Weekend in September. Last time we were also in September and the crowds were okay..

    We have also been to Toronto and Niagara Falls before, but it was ten years ago during our study in Ohio. In fact we have already been to all the cities before we are going to visit this time. This trip is more about reliving the past than about discovering new things.

    The Henry Ford Museum sounds indeed very interesting and I'm so looking forward to it.

    We loved Niagara and The Henry Ford - had an AP two years. We like Ann Arbor and Cedar Point (would love but discovered my drop height max is about 125/130ft.) Have fun!

    Thank you. I'm pretty sure we will have fun.

    We have already been to Niagara Falls once and to Cedar Point twice and we always enjoyed it a lot.

    In just a couple of days we will be back in the US. I'm getting more and more excited.
