Hockey Road Trip: Michigan-za! (Part 2)

Part 1 of the Michigan-za! saw Chad and I venturing around the great state of Michigan, with four hockey games in four days.  Now, my fiancee Charlene had arrived and we had much more to see...


The busiest day of the trip kicked off with a brief visit to the Gerald R. Ford Library in Ann Arbor - I was always a big fan of Presidential history as a kid, so it was fun to see an assortment of artifacts on display highlighting the life of the 38th U.S. President.

As an added bonus, the library also detailed his career as a football star at the University of Michigan, and his connections to the school after graduation.  I don't think Chad and Charlene cared too much, but I took my time to peruse the building before we headed to downtown Detroit.

Our first stop in Detroit would be the Motown Museum, which was always at the top of my list of things to do when I originally planned this trip.  It definitely lived up to my expectations, as we were treated to a hour-long tour of the famed recording studio that was both funny and heart-warming.  Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed inside, so I had to settle for a group picture out front:

I'm sure it goes without saying, but any visit to Detroit MUST include a stop at the Motown Museum!
