Route 1812 Driving Tour

In partnership with the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, Tourism Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island and the National Park Service, MotorCities is proud to introduce Route 1812 Driving Tour.










A mesmerizing historical road trip, this behind-the-wheel commemorative quest takes you through parts of Michigan, Ohio, and southern Ontario to explore the people, politics, and biggest battles that defined a war that threatened the existence of Canada and divided the U.S. so deeply that the nation almost broke apart. Throughout the tour, see forts that were surrendered, monuments and memorials later erected, and the actual battlefields where American and British soldiers experienced great victory and defeat.
Now until 2015, request or obtain a copy of your tour brochure and event list  by visiting one of our participating sites. Or download the brochure and Must-See Events card below!
