Travel to Michigan, USA
Vineyards and Breweries
Many first-time visitors are surprised to learn that Michigan has more than 100 wineries and even more breweries. Take a tasting tour at St. Julian, Michigan’s oldest vineyard. And remember, no matter where your vacation plans take you, you’re never far from excellent craft beer.
One of world’s best-loved islands, Mackinac is a timeless retreat no matter what time of year you visit. History buffs will enjoy visiting Fort Mackinac, one of America’s best preserved forts from the American Revolution, and the profusion of trails and scenery will appeal to nature lovers. For an eclectic experience, consider renting your own buggy to tour the island.
Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum
Dubbed The Graveyard Coast, the Lake Superior coastline is considered the most dangerous of the Great Lakes. The Shipwreck museum offers absorbing displays, but what is even more intriguing is its location on Michigan’s Whitefish Point Light Station where more than 200 shipwrecks occurred.
Located less than an hour from Detroit, quirky little Ann Arbor couldn’t be more different. Its Main Street was recently signaled out as one of America’s best downtown streets. Its abundance of local restaurants, galleries and bars will leave even city slickers spoilt for choice.
Tahquamenon Falls State Park
Located on the northern tip of the Upper Peninsula, Tahquamenon Falls is one of Michigan’s best-loved parks. Hike to the dramatic Upper Falls or rent a boat to take in the views of Lower Falls. Camping here is incredibly reasonable and the brewpub near the park’s entrance is the perfect finale to a day of hiking.
