Flint Airport Guide

Despite a strong industrial heritage, Flint has a remarkable cultural side. Over the last century, philanthropists, made wealthy on the profits from car production, have funded several projects including the Cultural Centre which incorporates a museum, an art gallery and a convention centre. If you want more culture, the city’s downtown area is a melange of art deco, turn of the century buildings and old factories and warehouses, now converted to luxury apartments. Tours are available to enable you to learn about the area and the part it played in Flint’s development.
