Michigan road trip

MICHIGAN ROAD TRIP: Expectations

I never really traveled to Michigan much, even though I grew up a couple states over in Illinois. Moving to Michigan during a pandemic still didn’t offer a lot of opportunities for exploration. After getting vaccinated it was time for some Midwest adventuring!

Getting There

Assuming this will be easy since I’m living in the state already. We will just be road tripping in our car to a handful of cities in the main mitten and in the Upper Peninsula.

Sites

We have a list of places picked out to see. Some are museums, but a lot are outdoor sites. Some include hiking in Tahquamenon Falls, walking around Mackinaw City, and watching the Soo Locks.

Weather

My assumption is for your typical Midwest Summer weather – hot, humid, and buggy.

Transportation

Taking our car! Since I’m not sure how remote some of the trip will be we just need to remember to fill up the gas tank often.

Food

Good old Midwestern ma and pa diners and some fast food.

Atmosphere

I don’t imagine anything will be out of the ordinary. I’m born and raised in the Midwest so I don’t think there is going to be a culture shock.

Stay tuned to hear what the reality of my trip was like.

Happy Travels,

Laura
