6. Tecumseh, Michigan
Tecumseh is located on the River Raisin, southwest of Detroit. Originally founded in the early 1800s, Tecumseh draws visitors for its famous railroad museum the Southern Michigan Railroad Society, as well as antiquing enthusiasts drawn to the local, amazing, antique dealers. When tired out from your day of perusing unique antiques, relax at one of the many cafes and fine dining establishments located in town. Visit the Antique Street Fair and Flea Market and see what treasures you uncover. For those brave enough to endure the cold, it also hosts the Ice Sculpting Festival in January. If autumn is more your season, check out the Appleumpkin festival in October. Enjoy autumn colors at this fall harvest festival and check out the handmade arts and crafts.
Explore the downtown area with all of its shops and restaurants, or relax at the Hidden Lakes Botanical Gardens and have a glass (or two) at Petamere Winery before continuing your shopping. There are a few bed and breakfasts that will take care of your accommodations during your stay so you can focus on what is important, relaxing and shopping.
