Ann Arbor, next door to “Ypsi”, is a classic college town, with pretty quads, scads of bookstores, and good hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Things do get crazy when the Wolverines (the University of Michigan’s football team) play a home game. In the Motor City, Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum are fun even if you’re not heavily into things automotive.
Mackinac Island/St. Ignace
Go ahead, be a fudgie (the local term for the tourists, who consume lots of fudge when they visit); just promise you’ll pronounce it correctly: it’s “Mackin-aw,” not “Mackin-ack.” Take the ferry to the island, poke inside the Grand Hotel, perhaps treat yourself to a horse-drawn carriage ride.
Set in Michigan’s beautiful north woods, this vacation paradise boasts sparkling lakes (including the biggie, Lake Michigan), postcard-pretty resort towns, and cool treasures such as Petoskey stones-smooth gray stones of calcified coral with geometrical patterns in white.
Come on over to the sunrise side of Michigan where the woods meet the water. Lake Huron offers beautiful white sandy beaches and the pristine AuSable River boasts canoeing, tubing and kayaking abound. Visit the Huron National Forest’s breathtaking views from the Lumbermans Monument, Canoers Memorial and Iargo Springs. Hike, bike or ORV on the many trails in the area.
