Today’s adventure was a 45 minute trip to Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan. Actually, before our trip West I read about the National Parks 3D movie at the IMAX Theatre in the Henry Ford Museum and wanted to see it. We did today and it made us want to go West again soon to see some of the National Parks we did not stop to visit.
Greenfield Village We have a yearly membership to Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village and have had one for many years. That way we can go anytime for short visits. Tip: We like to leave before 3:00 p.m. to avoid rush hour traffic. So today we got to the Village around 10:30 a.m. and went to the Firestone Farm area.
The aroma of a working farm is enough to make anyone want coffee and croissants so we headed over to the clock tower for a snack but it was closed. A sign directed us to the Taste of History Restaurant so off we went. We were successful too!
After this we headed back to the museum to catch the 12:20 showing of the National Parks movie. This movie happened to be free for members! The movie was only 45 minutes long but it inspired us to go to more National Parks and I hope others are inspired as well. Pictured Rocks National Park in the U. P. was featured during the winter which I never would have guessed was a cold weather destination. After sharing a Railroad Sandwich (Hobo bread, turkey, cheese, onion, and sweet mustard) for lunch we walked around some other areas of Greenfield Village and we had our 10,000 steps in before we left at 2:30.
