Michigan

Michigan is one of those states that’s truly capable of taking your breath away. With over 10,000 miles of crystal clear streams, thousands of rivers and lakes, and more freshwater shoreline than any other state in the country, Michigan has virtually cornered the market on water-based recreation. Up in the northern part of the state, you’ll find some of the best fishing to be had in the entire Great Lakes region. Every stop on this route has somewhere for you to park the rig, take a deep breath, and let the stresses of day to day life melt away.

Starting at Grayling, one place you won’t want to miss is the Hartwick Pines Park. Nearly 10,000 acres provide more than 100 campsites, several trails for strolling or hiking, and is a great place to go fishing. It’s also been designated a watchable wildlife area, so for those of you who like to watch birds and small mammals in their habitat, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied. The Hartwick Pines Logging Museum is on the park’s grounds, and is a popular visitor’s destination that showcases the 19th century logging trade with buildings, a logging camp, and several restored rooms from the period. A visitor’s center tells the story of the loggers who pioneered Michigan’s logging history with a series of artifacts and exhibits.

The next stop of Traverse City lies 50 miles eastward on the MI-72. If you plan your trip for the springtime, you’ll be treated to the sight of over two-and-a-half million cherry trees as they go into full bloom. The rest of the time, you can enjoy more than 180 miles of sandy beaches and 150 lakes, none of which is smaller than 10 acres in size. Finding a secluded piece of beach is absolutely no problem in Traverse City, so this area is perfect for those of you seeking peace and total solitude.

A fifty mile drive on the northbound US-31 takes you into the resort town of Charlevoix, where you can enjoy any of the boutiques, art galleries and eateries, all of which help give the town its unique and unusual character. Lake Charlevoix is on hand for boating, swimming and fishing, as is Round Harbor, which connects Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. The fifty-acre Sleepy Hollow Nature Preserve is a great place to stroll in nature and enjoy the surrounding spring-fed creek and hardwood forest.

Fifteen miles further north on the US-31 brings you to Petoskey, which is a great destination spot no matter what time of year you visit. There’s skiing in the winter, boating and fishing on Crooked Lake in spring, summer and fall, and loads of fine dining and unique shopping experiences year-round. If wineries and their products intrigue you, there are several in and around the Petoskey area, offering fine vintages and tours to keep you happy.

Head up the US-31 for 32 miles, then take the exit for the northbound I-75 and cruise for a little over 4 miles into Mackinaw City, which makes a terrific staging point for a full slate of activities in the area. There are several historic sites in ...
