Catch some shut eyes at an area hotel or bed & breakfast and prepare yourself for a sun filled day!

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is the first stop.  Offering multiple exhibits and educational programs, the world of science is right at your finger tips…it’s yours to explore!

A short ride to Chelsea brings you to the one and only Chelsea Teddy Bear Company Factor and Museum. You will be able to trace the evolution of toys, from old wood toys to tin toys to the #1 toy in the world, the teddy bear.  Then, take the special behind-the-scenes factory tour and learn how teddy bears come to life in the factory tour.

Lunch time!  The Arctic Breakaway in Chelsea is a full featured Restaurant located on the second floor of the Arctic Coliseum, an ice arena equipped with video game machines and air hockey tables.

Last stop, a little fun at the Rolling Hills Water Park in Ypsilanti Township!  The water park features a wave pool, water slides, lazy river, spraygrounds, and a sand play area. Concession stands offer affordable summertime treats, healthy choices, and grilled foods.  The park isn’t just a water park though, don’t miss the nearly two miles of paved trails, three miles of nature trails, 18-hole disc golf course, playground-level ball diamond, a sand volleyball court, and horseshoe pits.
