Welcome to Traveling Michigan!

As Michigan-born travel junkies, we fully embrace getting dirty, falling into a creek to capture that perfect photograph or doing what it takes to unearth the very best experiences our stunning state has to offer.

In the past 4 years we have spent over 365 days in hotels exploring our great state and beyond!

Embrace the feeling of the city, it's culture and it's people.  Notice your reaction to it.  You may feel strength, intimidation, inspiration or joy.  Engage in conversations with strangers, relish in new experiences and at times quietly observe the activity around you. 

Take time to look up.  

Notice the stars, the trees, exquisite clouds, the balconies on buildings or rooftop restaurants.  

Remaining open to the possibilities of a new city can create tremendous personal growth, spark a new passion, change your perceptions or teach you something about yourself. Taking the time to look up has greatly enriched my traveling adventures.

Need Packing Tips?  We've Done It a "Couple of Times!"

I've compiled a travel packing checklist that may help you to not forget anything while packing for an upcoming trip.  I especially use this list if I have to pack quickly. 

But really, as long as you have your essentials-contacts, glasses and medications you can buy anything you forgot. Remembering that takes a lot of pressure off while packing!

Where Will Your Traveling 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...
