Exploring Dearborn / Wayne
Diverse. Historic. Urban comfort.
Metro Detroit’s Dearborn/Wayne District is urban, diverse and downhome historic. Here, The Henry Ford, one of America’s greatest history attractions, invites all to peruse more than 26 million artifacts that personify the American experience — the Model T and the assembly line, the Rosa Parks bus, President Kennedy’s limo and so much more. Ford Motor Company claims this area as its headquarters and college kids populate it as well thanks to the Dearborn-based campus of the University of Michigan. Shoppers will find Michigan’s only Ikea store in this district. Plus, a full array of ethnic communities — from Arab-American and Mexican to Italian and Polish — give Dearborn/Wayne tons of character and options when it comes to exploring dining, entertainment, cultural destinations and nightlife.
