Planning a Summer or Fall family road trip through the gorgeous state of Michigan during 2016?  Here are a few stops you cannot pass.

Copper Harbor is the Northern most tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  Not only can you see Quebec Harbour from the shore, you can also see pet skunks on a Copper Mine tour.

Another must see in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is the Oswald Bear Ranch.  You can actually pet a cub.

Maybe sight seeing is more your speed.  Go on one of the most  beautiful hikes of your life and see amazing waterfalls on all sides of you.  Or, rent a paddle boat and get an even better view.

Whether it's sight seeing, hiking, camping or swiming; this is a must stop for a family road trip in the "lower" P of Michigan.

Ludington

Peaceful, laid back and incredible sunsets off Lake Michigan.  The Lighthouse is a symbol of Lake Michigan.  Have you been to the one in Pure Ludington yet?

Last but not least...maybe the most majestic and historic area Michigan has to offer.
