Snappy Fridays – A Visit to Motown

image

Last week, as you may have heard, I went on a road trip.  I hit 3 destinations:
Detroit, Birch Run/Frankenmuth and Chicago.  My highlight from Detroit?  Definitely this place!

Snappy Facts:
– The Ford Rouge Complex is significant because it is a birthplace of modern manufacturing in North America.
– Today, the Ford Rouge Factory assembles all of the Ford F150 pickups sold globally.
– The factory’s green roof is just over 10 years old. It is the largest in North America, spanning 10.4 acres – that’s about 8 football fields!
