We wanted to go on a COVID safe vacation and there’s no where more social distanced than the Upper Peninsula. We’ve been a few times and wanted to do something new so we went all the way to the peak – Copper Harbor. I love being in the UP because it’s so calm with waterContinue reading “5 Summer Days in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula”
Every year our group of 10 friends goes up north together. 2020’s choice was Boyne City! A nice centrally located city. We stayed in an Airbnb that was walk-able to downtown.
No summer is complete without a girls night or trip to Traverse City. We stayed in a VRBO in Capri Apartments which was a nice central location for everything we wanted to do.
The west coast of Michigan is the best place for beaches and beer – our two favorite things! We camped in our tent at Holland State Park and headed to all nearby cities.
Michigan is one of the top three best states for craft beer in the country and Kalamazoo is one of the best cities to get beer in Michigan! There are many breweries and most are downtown and within walking distance of one another.
It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from the Detroit area. We got an airbnb and did a self-made brewery tour for a day. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday, especially when it’s warm out!
Ann Arbor is home to Michigan University, lots of artsy places and tons of restaurants/breweries – there are a million+ ways to make a day or weekend trip here! My sister and I went for a concert and focused our day on only the best – drinking and shopping! Here was our plan – everythingContinue reading “Sisters Shopping + Drinking Day Trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan”
We went up to Traverse City to see some leaves and drink some beer! Make sure you check out leaf projection maps before going up north. It’s hard to catch them at their peak! I think planning a spontaneous trip is the easiest way to see some color. We did not do that, but didContinue reading “Three Fall Days in Traverse City, Michigan”
Every year we go on a couples trip somewhere in Michigan – this year it was the St. Joseph area. One of my favorite parts of the state! DAY 1: DOWNTOWN ST. JOSEPH + BENTON HARBOR Mason Jar: We got lunch at my favorite restaurant in the area, The Mason Jar! It’s so cute andContinue reading “Three Day Friends Trip to St. Joseph, Michigan”
Every summer we try to take a Saturday and drive the 2-ish hours over to Lexington. It’s a small town in the Thumb of Michigan right on Lake Huron.
Everything is walkable so you can park your car downtown for the day and set out.
Here’s the itinerary we followed with our group of eight in Muskegon! It’s a small, cute beach town on the west side of the state.
FRIDAY: BEER + BEACH
On our way in from the Detroit area, we stopped at Perrin Brewing for lunch. This is a nice sized brewery with lots of beer, food and indoor/outdoor seating.
