When it comes to planning an automotive-themed getaway, all roads lead to Detroit – the “Motor City.”
Highlighting annual events in this motor mecca is the world renowned North American International Auto Show revving up next week.
It attracts more than 800,000 people over nine days to view 750 vehicles and countless interactive displays.

While in town, cruise over to the Henry Ford museum, tour auto baron homes and cap it off with a stay at Marriott’s Dearborn Inn built by Henry Ford.
The auto show from Jan. 14 to 22 at the Cobo Center is the place to see “next-generation automotive products and technologies” as they make their world debuts.
Among those is the new fifth-generation Lexus flagship sedan said to have an extended “bold new look with a coupe-like silhouette” and premium rear-wheel drive “for a more dynamic experience on the road.”
