A great bar right in the middle of downtown. Fantastic draft selection, with most of the beers locally made in/near Detroit.
The place itself isn't too exciting (fake old-west roadside stop), but the fact that guaranteed you'll see varied, non-descriptive billboards for Wall Drug at least 200 miles out means you have to go see it. Amazing homemade donuts as well. And you can get a bumper sticker that aptly says 'where the heck is Wall Drug.' This place has something for everyone.
An awesome park. With the colored rock formations, it looks like Mars! Definitely worth driving through at the very least. We stayed at the Sage Creek campground on the west end of the park, which is free, and is made of of a large clearing where you can pitch your tent anywhere (there's a bathroom, but no water, so pack that in). The campground is spacious enough for all, and has some shaded picnic tables that get claimed pretty quickly. The park is truly fantastic, and we saw tons of wildlife: buffalo, prairie dogs, bighorn sheep, and massive spiders!
Great stop. Eating/drinking on the rooftop, family-dining style, is where you get the most magnificent rock canyon views. The food is nothing special, but the beer is fantastic.
A MUST SEE. Zion is truly an awe-inspiring, incredible park. High, red rock canyons like nothing I've ever seen. If you don't get out to the trails early, it tends to get pretty busy and feels a little Disneyland-ish if you're more used to hikes where you're totally alone for miles. Nevertheless, 100% worth stopping at for at least a few hours. If you're not afraid of heights, do Angels Landing!
Great little stop and photo op. When we went, he had a giant 'Relay for Life' t-shirt on, which made it even funnier. A nice place to stop for a picnic too, with a cute gift shop nearby.
One of the most unique roadside stops I've ever seen, so bizarre and fantastic! It's free, so you just park at the visitors sign and walk around at your own leisure. It's strange to see the hollow molds of recognizable figures, and how nature takes over between them. A great photo op. And it looks like the company is still in business at work!
Great quick stop for a picture. Literally right off of the freeway, so it's easy.
I'm an avid reader and love a bookstore with personality and I must say, what a place!! This is a must-see if you love any kind of books or quirky shops. This shop has such personality, from the feisty hand-written signs, to the crazy-but-meticulous organization, to the sole bathroom tucked away on the 2nd floor only opened by a gigantic keychain. Although the place doesn't have every book under the sun, it has anything you might be looking for, and specializes in rare prints. I could easily have spent hours in this great stop.
A great place to stop to really feel some of the soul of Detroit and its residents. A strange, ethereal area to walk through and look at all different types of art. It's always changing as pieces get created and ruined by human and nature alike.
