HotelTonight – Dearborn, MI Hotels are Available

I've been traveling to and through Detroit for decades. I've always enjoyed the history associated with the Motor City and always looked forward to my work trips there. The only regret I have is that over the years, I've rarely had any time to get out and explore some of the communities that form the foundation of this metropolitan area. I've heard some things about some of the places, and those things have only intrigued me more. I promised myself that if I could ever find some time to explore a neighborhood or two, that's exactly what I'd do. Fortunately for me, I stumbled into that exact opportunity the last time I was there. My last day of meetings got canceled that morning, so suddenly I had a full 24 hours to explore. I kept my original flight home, but I would have to find lodging for the night as that wouldn't be covered. That wasn't a problem, however, as I travel with my HotelTonight app. I'd book a Dearborn, MI hotel room in seconds as soon as I was ready to get some sleep. I couldn't wait to get out and see Dearborn.

The Museums

The first thing I noticed when I pulled into town was that there were quite a few museums there. I didn't expect to encounter so much history, but being a history buff I was thrilled to see all of these choices. I walked through three of them, but I think my favorite was the Henry Ford. I love cars, and this was a museum that took a timeless look at the automobile industry from the day it began so many years ago. There were more things to look at than just cars as well, as there were classic pieces of memorabilia from a wealth of different contexts.

The Outdoors

When I'm in Detroit, I know that there is a lot to see, but one thing I've never really considered is the possibilities for enjoying the outdoors. There are a lot of different parks here, and it was a beautiful day when I was there, so I put on my walking shoes and got outside for a bit. I went to one park that was not only enormous, but it was so set off from the bustle of town that I would have sworn that I was walking around in the wilderness somewhere.

The Dining

There are a lot of options for dinner in Dearborn, but a lady at the park told me about a barbecue place that had been filling up almost since the day it opened. That sounded great to me, so I made my way over there for a bite. It was an attractive place with wooden floors, walls and ceilings, and I went with the brisket, cornbread, macaroni and cheese and a local beer. I ate so quickly I couldn't believe how much I was putting down, but it was all that delicious.

HotelTonight – Dearborn, MI Hotels Just for You

I was extremely full and quite tired from my active day, so I opened my HotelTonight app and booked a Dearborn, MI hotel room in seconds. About 20 minutes later, I climbed into my comfortable, big bed, happy that I took advantage of the opportunity to see another part of Detroit.
