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”
DAY 1: GASTOWN + STANLEY PARK Gastown: We started off our day in this tourist haven! We went early in the morning so it wasn’t TOO crowded yet. There are a ton of cute stores, bars and restaurants here. Don’t forget to get a picture with THE gas clock itself. Alley Oop: Stop here onContinue reading “A Quick Two Days in Vancouver”
After two days in Vancouver, we hopped in our car and went south to Diablo Lake in Washington. And it was worth the detour! There’s a route you can drive to see some awesome views. We stopped at the smaller lower lake first and then made our way up. We got some beers and snuckContinue reading “One (!!) Day in Seattle + Diablo Lake”

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.
We took a long weekend to explore the Bay City region. We camped at the Linwood Beach Marina, which was interesting…..our campsite was right on the water though! Here’s our itinerary. DAY 1: MIDLAND + A SUNSET SAIL Dow Gardens – We spent the morning walking around here. We made our way to Whiting ForestContinue reading “Two Days in Bay City, Michigan”
After spending three days in Taiwan, we flew over to our first stop in Japan – Kyoto! After this we went up to Tokyo via the bullet train. Kyoto is definitely the more cultural and historic city of the two.
Our first trip to Taiwan! We didn’t have much time so we tried to hit all the highlights in three short days.
Saugatuck is one of my favorite cities Michigan – so of course we had to plan a friends trip there! Four couples stayed in an apartment right downtown for the weekend. It was great to be able to walk to dinner and drinks every night.
