Where should I go for a day trip in Michigan?

by Carol G.

I found your events page but wondered what we could do for a full day in Michigan? We have two kids, 10 and 14 that will be with us. THANKS! Carol


Hi Carol!

Oooh, so I highly recommend Sleeping Bear Dunes! You can climb the dunes, drive a scenic road with unbelievable vistas, take photos, picnic and sightsee! Awesome Guide to Sleeping Bear Dunes

Also, we had an absolute blast on the east coast of Michigan. Check it out: Lake Huron Day Trip

If you love kayaking and shipwreck tours, check out Alpena, I bet you will be surprised!

Fun in Alpena (Shipwrecks, Kayaking, Wine!)

As always, check out our website home page for more fun ideas!
