This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

Occasionally we are compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics.

The views and opinions expressed on this website are our own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

All reviews featured on Traveling Michigan are conducted with products that we sourced and paid for just as you would or were sent by a company (or representing PR agency) specifically to review for free. However, no positive review was promised in exchange for the product, just a review and all thoughts on the product or service are ours and only ours! 

Unless disclosed otherwise, locations reviewed and product recommendations were sourced by us without sponsorship of any kind! We feel strongly about providing unbiased reviews for our readers.  This ensures you receive the best experience on our site, our recommended locations, our guided/self-guided tours and products we use and recommend. You will know if compensation was accepted when we use “Sponsor” or “Sponsored” or a variation to describe them.  

If it’s on our site we believe in it 100%!  We have personally experienced, visited the location, owned the product or visited the establishment.  We photograph locations using our own cameras, drones and passion.  Occasionally we utilize close friends or family to help procure images and opinions from locations they have visited. 

All Amazon links are affiliate links. We get a percentage of purchase price when you buy from Amazon after clicking on one of my links!

Have a place, product or experience you want us to see?  Recommend it!  We are always looking for a new place to visit and share on our site.  Utilize the Contact Us page to recommend it.
