You will take a walk in the Millennium Park, a combination of stunning architecture, sculpture and landscape design located in the heart of downtown Chicago. You will also see Cloud Gate, the impressive signature urban sculpture, which is one of the best public spaces that you can find on earth. Relax at the Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain, one of the world's largest artificial fountains, and at the Navy Pier, the former Navy training center, which is the most visited lakeshore park in central United States.

As the birthplace of skyscrapers, Chicago has a skyline bristling with skyscrapers. You can also enjoy a Chicago Cruise along the Chicago River which lines up with best architecture in town: the corncob shaped Marina City buildings, Trump Tower, Willis Tower and much more (admission not included, subject to availability).
Summary of The Day: We will start the day with the biggest industrial city in Wisconsin, Milwaukee, birthplace of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. We'll visit the Harley-Davidson Museum (admission not included) and get a glimpse of American history that you’ve never seen before. This all-American legendary motorcycle brand showcases a collection of 450 motorcycles and artifacts including the oldest known Harley Davidson motorcycle. Every hand crafted bike is passing the message of Harley Davidson spirit: passion, freedom, bravery, and individuality.
Next, we will visit ginseng farm in Wausau, Wisconsin. Wisconsin is one of a few places that produce the finest ginseng in the world. These panax roots (ginseng) are excellent health supplement and a nutritious oriental cooking ingredient. Wisconsin ginseng is highly sought after, especially in Asia. We would organize an authentic oriental ginseng dinner depending on reservation and time.
Summary of The Day: Be ready to enjoy a breathtaking view of natural landscape of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area. We will arrive in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, a stunning U.S national lakeshore on the shore of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Unique rock formation and colorful cliffs stand by the translucent blue water, dividing sky and the earth with a vivid horizon line.
Then we will go to the Sault Ste. Marie in the late afternoon, a city located on the northeastern end Michigan just on the Canadian border. Sault Ste. Marie is the oldest city in Michigan. Here we will overlook an impressive man-made wonder: the Soo Locks. Since there were rapids of water falling 21 feet from Lake Superior to Lake Huron and forbidding the waterway commuting, the Soo Locks enable ships to travel between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes. The locks pass an average of 10,000 ships per year, despite being closed during the winter from January through March, when ice shuts down shipping on the Great Lakes.
Afterwards we'll head to our hotel for dinner.
Summary of The Day: Today, we'll leave Sault Ste. Marie for Mackinac City. We will drive through a five-mile-long suspension bridge connecting the upper and the lower half of Michigan peninsula to reach Mackinaw. This city is famous for the magnificent scenic view. We will take a scenic speedboat (own expense) to get to Mackinac Island, where you'll be immersed in a peaceful world where only life's essentials and natural beauty co-exist. The whole island is well preserved to remain the urban style of the 19th century.
Since motor vehicles are not permitted to intrude on the natural beauty of Mackinac Island, there is no better way to visit this historic isle and see the legendary points of interest than by carriage. You can take a carriage tour at your own expense to explore the parks or visit the museums and the Grand Hotel.
Built in 1887, Grand Hotel is famous as the filming site for the 1980 film Somewhere in Time starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. Sip some coffee on the hotel’s porch (longest in the world) like its notable visitors of the hotel include five U.S. presidents, Russian president Vladimir Putin, inventor Thomas Edison, and author Mark Twain.
Later we will then head to Frankenmuth, a German town. To experience the entirely different local culture, we will dine at a well-known local restaurant, enjoy some world famous German sausage with authentic German beers (own expense) and visit the historical brewery.
Summary of The Day: Today we'll tour Detroit in the morning. We will stop at the headquarters of the General Motors Company, then visit Henry Ford Museum (admission not included). The exhibitions not only portray the history of Ford but also the Industrial Revolution. The collection contains many rare exhibits including John F. Kennedy’s presidential limousine, Abraham Lincoln’s chair from Ford’s Theatre, Thomas Edison’s laboratory, the Wright Brothers’ bicycle shop, and the Rosa Parks bus.
