I can't help it. I love the state I live in. I'm already lining up the trips we'll be taking this summer and can't wait. We'll spend a week in the U.P. Camp here and there. Take a side trip up to Sleeping Bear Dunes and then grab some snacks in Glen Arbor at Cherry Republic after getting a coffee at Leelanau Coffee on our way out to Point Betsie Lighthouse. We'll stop for a quick bite at Scalawags Whitefish in Mackinaw City before crossing the Mackinac Bridge. Before heading towards Escanaba, we might take a slight detour east on into St. Ignace and snag a great cup of coffee at Java Joe's Cafe on the east side of town. Depending on the weather and the kiddos moods we might head north a bit at some point and take in Tahquamenon Falls and go through the Seney National Wildlife Refuge.
Oh, there's tons of stuff to do in Michigan and that's just a few of the plans that we have. Watch this video and get excited about taking a Michigan vacation this year. Then, be sure to vote in this week's poll about favorite places to visit here in Michigan. If yours isn't on the list or you want to be more specific, please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments.
