Michigan is a great destination for travelers in the summer months…savor all the flavors and delights throughout the Great Lakes State of Michigan!

It is home to a plethora of lakes, beaches, sand dunes, hills and forests. The weather is perfectly attuned to visiting the great outdoors of the Great Lakes State. Michigan is the only state to consist of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula is often noted to be shaped like a mitten. The Upper Peninsula (“the U.P.”) is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, a five-mile channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The two peninsulas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge.  We’ll even have an opportunity to go beyond the Soo Locks in Sault Ste Marie to visit our Canadian neighbors.  We see it all.

What a diversified state.  Some of the highlights of our trip will be visiting the state capital, learning about the Dutch Heritage in Holland, the German Heritage in Frankenmuth, the auto industry in Detroit, and exploring the history of the Mackinaw area. We’ll ride the dunes, enjoy 3 wonderful cruises, have tours of unusual museums and some fascinating factory tours.

We’ll enjoy many fabulous food specialties of the Great Lakes state.  Let’s start with cherries, cherries everywhere.  Michigan accounts for 75% of the US crop of tart cherries. We’ll partake in many of the annual Cherry Festival activities. Not only is Michigan known for their cherries, they are also known for asparagus, cereal (home to Post and Kellogg’s), fudge, and pasties (a meal in a pastry shell). Grand Rapids was even voted Beer City USA 2013.

What a diversified state!  Welcome to Pure Michigan! We know it’s possible to have an amazing time here.

Testimonials

  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and the Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.

    Garry & Karen West
  • I must say it was way beyond my wildest dreams and thoughts of South Africa. First of all, I have to say that the people were exceptional. They were beautiful not only in looks, their beauty was in everything they did for us. They were so happy to talk with us and question us about America. They all would love to come over here to visit but said they knew they would never be able to afford the trip. I was overwhelmed with the young children and their attitude toward us. They laughed, smiled and waved to us all along the highways on their way to school. I have to admit, I was so proud of how they were dressed and their pride. Our American children have so much and appreciate it so little.
