Detroit, MI

After I moved up to Pittsburgh in August 2015, we continued our travels together to Detroit, Michigan that September. Besides the crack in our windshield, it was a great trip! The crack did begin our love of car rentals on road trips though, so even that may have been a blessing in disguise.

We made our way to Motor City to see one of our favorite artists, Ben Rector. He played with Cody Fry, which was a treat to get introduced to him that night as well. Saint Andrews was a wonderful venue, and we definitely need to make our way back there for another show.

Once we were done touring the city, we took a short drive to Dearborn to see the Ford museum!
