Common Vacation Planning Mistakes to Avoid

  • Vacation Mistake #1: "We'll just figure it out when we get there." Winging it is great (and lots of fun) but it's best to have a general plan.  I channel the A-Team when I say, "I love it when a plan comes together."
  • Vacation Mistake #2: "We MUST do these 3,748 things on my list or I'll be upset."  This was me....5 years ago.  I was miserable (so were my travel companions.)  Don't be me.
  • Vacation Mistake #3: "This hotel says its affordable and isolated, I say we go for it."'s kind of like going on a date from a Craig's list ad.  You just hope you don't end up in a tub of ice with a missing kidney.

You've worked too hard and saved too much money to waste it on a disaster vacation. Let us help.

Don't Be A Griswold.

Where Will Your Michigan Adventures Begin?   

    The astounding beauty of Michigan sells itself.  So it's probably not necessary for me to tell you about our beautiful beaches, lighthouses and waterfalls. 
    .....I definitely don't need to mention the abundant wineries, award winning breweries, lush fruit and livestock farms, and unrivaled restaurants in Michigan.
    .....Since we are on a roll, it would be redundant to discuss our fast race tracks, exciting museums, outstanding zoos and diverse art. 
    .....Aaaaand I'm sure you're not interested in learning about our outstanding hiking, biking, Motorsports and water activities. 
    I say we just discuss history and quiet indoor activities instead!  JUST KIDDING!!  
  • Do you crave sightseeing travel?  Is your idea of a good time relaxing and enjoying great food without breaking a sweat?  Don't worry, we've got you covered.
  • Does your soul ache for an adrenaline fueled trip involving motor sports and outdoor adventures with tender BBQ and ice cold brews? We've got that.
  • Maybe you are searching for a budget travel guide. We have options for that!
  • Or quite possibly your ideal Michigan vacation includes amazing new food experiences, shopping, beaches, light houses, photography, ice cream, a glass of wine and a cozy hotel?  Oh, Yeah...

        If you answered YES YES YES to any of these (or all...we won't judge) then...
