Transportation

So you are visiting Michigan and need a car to get around. You are in the right state when it comes to cars. Although Michigan, and namely the Ford company, did not invent the car, they sure pioneered the process of the assembly line, which brought the cost of cars down by reducing their production time. Henry Ford first introduced the assembly line in 1913, and by 1927, 15 million of his Model T's had been manufactured.

If you are planning a package trip with your airfare, hotel and car rental together, then you will likely save a bit on your rental, so that is something to look into.
