October is Truck Month: Celebrate with a Ford Rouge Factory Tour

We are the Motor City and so fortunate to have such great automotive resources and history.  As a homeschooling mom, a trip to the Ford Rouge Factory is the perfect way to celebrate Truck Month.
Metro Detroit Mommy blogger, Erica, will be visiting later this month courtesy of The Henry Ford and sharing her experience with you, so make sure you subscribe, so you don't miss that post.

From their website: Walk through a real-life truck plant, view one of the world’s largest "living roofs," and see a gallery of iconic Ford vehicles produced at the Rouge. Located in Dearborn, just outside of Detroit, Michigan; visitors also enjoy two exciting theater experiences, from a multisensory film about the making of the new Ford F-150 truck filled with jaw-dropping special effects, to a short documentary about the factory’s past featuring rare archival footage.

To Celebrate Truck Month The Henry Ford has offered to give three of our lucky fans (and 3 family members) the opportunity to attend for free.  Just enter below for your chance to win.

  1. Living in The D, I think we get jaded as to the marvels of the auto industry. I've been the The Henry Ford a bunch of times with my kids and its always a good time. I have never actually toured the assembly plant though. A few years ago, my Aunt came to visit and she took the tour (sadly I couldn't go at the time). She came back RAVING about how interesting and fun it was. I've been wanting to go ever since, but haven't forced myself to find the time... yet... :)

  2. I work in the automotive industry, but sadly have never taken a tour of a factory. I think it would be a great experience to share with my family.

  3. My family has never been to the Ford tour. I have heard that its amazing!!! (and by the end you will want to buy a ford truck) :)
