Group Tours

Customize your tour experience!

We can help organize and plan your upcoming tour. With attractions and locations for every group, we can help you create an unforgettable event! Check out of a few of our ideas below:

  • Plan a cultural tour of the downtown Flint area. Flint & Genesee is home to such wonderful attractions such as the Flint Institute of Arts, the second largest art gallery in Michigan, and the largest planetarium in the Midwest, Longway Planetarium.
  • If culinary tours are what you are looking for, we have an abundance of markets, orchards and dairy farms.  We also have the beautiful Applewood Estates, an 18-acre estate belonging to the Mott Family, which is a horticulturist’s dream.
  • Step back in time and visit an 1800’s working village, Crossroads Village and the Huckleberry Railroad.  Sloan Museum details the history of Flint & Genesee and the Whaley Historic House Museum, a Victorian mansion, is a great stop for tea and scones.
  • If entertainment is what you are looking for, then there is The Whiting’s Showcase Series, the New McCree Theatre and the Michigan Renaissance Festival, which opens yearly from mid-August through September.
  • Shopping more your speed?  We are conveniently located between the two largest shopping malls in the state, the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets and Birch Run Premium Outlets, not to mention our many antique malls, the Genesee Valley Shopping Center and Courtland Center Mall.
