Feel the musical vibes of today and yesterday,
as you explore the urban landscape of Detroit.
Smell the citrus groves of central Florida,
and breathe in the vineyards of northern Michigan.
Explore the jungles of South America and touch the microworld of the rainforest.
Taste the culture, hear the music.
Live the moment.

Don’t just read about it.
Live it.
