Flint Travel Guide
Welcome to Flint, MI!
Flint's history is deeply rooted in transportation. During the 1800s, this Michigan town served as an important river crossing on the Pontiac Trail, and following the logging boom Flint became a major manufacturing center for log-hauling contraptions, carts and wagons. Today, Flint boasts a carriage-making industry of international repute. The Alfred P. Sloan Museum explores many of the interesting developments of Flint's past, including the growth of General Motors automobiles and the rise of the logging industry. For a more palpable journey through Flint history, visit the historic structures—including a cider mill, a grist mill and an operating blacksmith—at Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad. Flint's arts scene is bolstered by the Flint Cultural Center, where music, art, dance and theater come alive in exhibits, performances and special events. The Genesee Recreation Area, a popular spot for camping, fishing and hiking, is located just northeast of the city.
Children have the chance to experience a variety of educational exhibits at the Flint Children's Museum, open Tuesday through Saturday.
