Business, History and Culture

Dearborn is home of Ford Motor Company's World Headquarters, as well as home of AAA. Dearborn is one of the business mecca's of the Detroit area. It is also home of the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.

If you enjoy Middle Eastern Cuisine, Dearborn is the place to be. It houses the largest concentration of Arab Americans in the United States, and there is a plethora of authentic Arabic restaurants including La Shish and New Yasmeen Bakery.

Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village

Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village bring history to life! A great learning experience for adults and children alike. Ride around a historic town in a Model T or on a paddle boat! See my Travel Louge below for more information and pics!

    We do have an excellent variety of restaurants, from many cultures and in all price ranges, to choose from in and around Dearborn. Thanks for these excellent write-ups on my "hometown", Carrie! :-)
