The tour took place following the senator's famous Peace Corps speech on the steps of the Michigan Union in Ann Arbor.

Kennedy's nine-car special covered nearly 250 miles of Michigan countryside and stopped in ten cities: Ann Arbor, Jackson, Albion, Marshall, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Owosso, and Saginaw.

Wrote Russell Baker in the New York Times:

"The Kennedy campaign temporarily left the airlanes and the electronic trial chambers of televison today for a brief excursion through nostalgia. The territory was the solid Republican districts of central Michigan and to reach them the Democratic presidential candidate went back to the campaign train."
