Four Seasons at The Henry Ford

Located just outside of Detroit, The Henry Ford has two top-notch attractions — Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.

It doesn’t get any merrier than Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village, where you’ll find 80 acres of carolers, roasting chestnuts and historic homes. Take a ride on a Model T or horse-drawn wagon or a spin on the carousel or around the ice rink. Make your evening even more magical by booking Supper with Santa or a candle-lit dinner at Eagle Tavern. 

Greenfield Village opens for the season April 15. Until then, there’s plenty to explore inside at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, including the bus on which Rosa Parks was riding when she was arrested and the rocking chair in which Abraham Lincoln was sitting when he was shot. Kids love the hands-on activities and exhibits. 

Greenfield Village is an outdoor living history museum that’s home to almost 100 buildings from different time periods in America, including the Wright Brothers’ original bicycle shop that was moved from Dayton, Ohio. Other famous buildings include poet Robert Frost’s home and the courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law in Illinois.

Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village invites guests to stroll through the village at their own pace. During the day, enjoy wool dying, beer brewing and yard games. Things get spookier at night on the illuminated jack-o’-lantern path that leads through dramatic vignettes from such stories as The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
