Inkster Valley Golf Club

Opened in May of 1998, Inkster Valley is filled with an abundance of natural wildlife incorporating over 100 acres of wetland, wooden bridges and breathtaking views within its 400-acre surroundings. An 18-hole, par-72 Championship Course, Water comes into play at 14 of the holes. The clubhouse features a grille, with variable seating of up to 100. This challenging course creates an "up north" setting without the time-consuming three to four-hour drive to achieve this caliber of golf.

Minutes from the Airport you'll find Michigan's version of Bethpage Black. Very challenging course from the back tees. The course conditions have drastically improved over the last couple years with the greens seeing the biggest improvement. Excellent Par 3's. Good luck on #11.Thank you so much for the spectacular review. 4-star feedback is great to see. We are glad you had an incredible time and hope to see you again soon.

Greenfield Village

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

Between his greed, the poor working conditions in his factories, and his brutal early union busting efforts, Henry Ford really wasn’t the nicest guy ever. But he showed a lot of foresight in bringing together this collection of buildings and artifacts to preserve history and make them available for public viewing. I do appreciate being able to see the Wright Brothers’ bicycle shop, Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory, and the many other historic buildings assembled here from their various original locales. And I appreciate that Ford crossed racial barriers to work with George Washington Carver.

There’s a lot to read and learn here. The village employs an army of folks in period costumes. Between wandering around on our own, we took in a musical program, and saw an interpreter portraying Edison.

We’ve been to several other living history villages including Colonial Williamsburg, The Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, Canada, and Heritage Park Historical Village near Calgary, but this location holds a special place because of the five or so times I’ve been to the Detroit area, I’ve visited this place nearly every time, going back to when I was very young.

The last time we were here, we paid for and enjoyed a ride in a Model T, which was a 30-minute tour that provided an overview of the place. I was a little disappointed to find the Model T ride is now just a seven-minute circuit, not a tour, and you have to line up in a cue for your turn. It was still fun, but not what I expected. Seems like there’s been other changes since we were last here more than 10 years ago, including more extensive development of the park’s roads, the addition of more food stands, and development of a whole arts and crafts area showcasing various crafts.

Travel back in time through the Plymouth community's example of the American Experience. Learn how the growth of American industry, the advent of the railroad and the invention of the automobile changed America's small towns, especially Plymouth, Michigan. The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store. The largest Lincoln collection in the state of Michigan is housed in a separate room off of Main Street. And a Timeline of Plymouth is the newest permanent exhibit, featuring displays on the Daisy Air Rifle, Ford Village Industries, the Alter Motor Car, World War II, communication history, and much more.
