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

  • Enjoyed this rally because the wagonmaster & assistant were a lot of fun and made the rally so much fun without worry!  Thank you everyone!   We love traveling with Adventure Caravans!   A great way to have a vacation!

    Tom & Peggy Burns
  • “The thorough coverage of Alaska provided memories for a lifetime!”
    Allan & Pat Hagerstrand
  • “We enjoyed looking at the photos. I agree regarding the description of the Kaori Wildlife Sanctuary stop. In fact I would rate it as the high point of the entire Queensland / New Zealand tour. I am surprised to see other tours, even tours billed as "wildlife tours", that don't even make that stop.”
    Norm Day
  • “A real rich experience, many excellent and varied opportunities. We had a lot of fun with wonderful people!”
    Steve & Jenny Altman

  • Regarding our 31-day Canadian Maritimes caravan Cindy and I would like to express how much we enjoyed the caravan with Rick & Sharon Gilbert and John & Sally Mincks. Both couples were outstanding and we would love to book any caravan they are involved with. We booked for the 2018 Big Sky caravan and hope you can assign one or both off them to that trip. We met many wonderful people and hope we have made some new life long friendships. We hope to meet up with Rick and Sharon at the Tampa RV show in January. The tour guides for our various bus tours were top notch, all added much information and interesting stories to the tour. Please give a big thanks to Roger in Quebec City, Roddie in PEI, Carolyn in Halifax and Paul on The Cabot Trail.
