    Beautiful place! You should take your time in your visit. All staff is dressed accordingly to they time. All restaurants close at 4 so plan ahead your lunch. Hop on train or an old Ford T model

    Great walking living museum of American History. Henry Ford left his legacy for all generations to see. Highly advise riding a model T.

    Hobo lunch is great for kids. For adults, the hot beef in a bread bowl with mashed potatoes is unbelievable. Vintage baseball games on Saturdays are fun to watch as well

    A meal at Eagle Tavern combines authentic atmosphere with delicious dishes; it's a "must visit" for the proper experience.

    Get a custard ice cream, they are the best. Just don't get one with chocolate or other coating on a super hot day, they are super messy due to melting!

    Buy the unlimited ride pass for $10. If you ride in one Model T and the train, you'll spend $8 without even checking out the Carousel, Model AA Bus, or Omnibus shuttle.
