road trip to end at Detroit - Rolling Stones

I'd like to combine a road trip scenic vacation in Michigan this June that either starts or ends with The Rolling Stones concert in Detroit June 10. Open to drive, fly, ferry, but what should i see or make a separate trip for? Looking at probably a week or longer if needed. Should I stay in the southern Michigan area or do a flight up to Traverse City then road trip south? I've been to Holland, Grand Haven and South Haven before and certainly would like to return to the Morning Star restaurant in Grand Haven!!

Agree a loop would be the best option. Ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon (or suffer Chicago traffic) and head south for the southern Lake Michigan beach towns. Shoot across I-94 to Detroit for the concert. Then head north on I-75 to Traverse City, Mackinac area, etc. and head home through the UP. I would want two weeks for that.

If you really do want to do a one-way I would fly to DTW and get a one way rental car. Hit the concert then head up north and home through the UP. Less driving but also less you can see.

Beware, based on another thread here, that Detroit hotel prices are sky high for the concert since the auto show is also going on that week.
