Where to Visit in Michigan

From Jennifer:

In Michigan, also known as the Great Lakes State, there are adventures to be had everywhere you look.

Up North, as us natives call it, GMA should visit the Traverse City/Leelenau/Old Mission Pennisula (or the little fingers). Great vacation spots in the summer. Attractions to see: The Sleeping Bear Dunes; art galleries, antiques and vineyards are everywhere. Chateau Grand Traverse can boast a Riesling that competes and wins against German vineyards.

Our UP (Upper Peninsula) is God's country. Houghton and Hancock along with Calumet in Copper Harbor are reminders of our mining days.

Isle Royale National Park is located in Lake Superior. The park has breath-taking shoreline and is home to wolves and moose. It is only accessible by boat or floatplane.

"Isle Royale is relatively untouched by direct outside influences and serves as a living laboratory and United States Biosphere Reserve," quoted from the National Parks Web site.

In the Detroit area, there is the DaimlerChrysler Auburn Hills Headquarters, home to the American brands Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. Their headquarters was built to be easily converted into a shopping mall if ever vacated by the automaker.

On their grounds, the Walter P. Chrysler Museum, host to the history of the automaker.

Royal Oak and Birmingham are two centers of culture for local artists.

Ann Arbor is home to Charlie's favorite football team, The Michigan Wolverines. Great college town. There's always something going on!
