Summer is coming, and it’s time to start thinking about that summer road trip. I absolutely love driving around Michigan in the summer and finding new places I’ve never seen before. This state is simply beautiful, and summer is my favorite time to explored it.
As it turns out, Michigan is home to one of the best places to travel in the month of June, according to a new article from TravelandLeisure.com. They only picked 13 places to highlight, so it’s great that Michigan is on the list.
So, what’s the host spot? Mackinac Island. “This charming island destination is opening for the summer season, and lilacs are blooming,” the publication states. “The festival honoring the fragrant flowers takes place from June 3-12, with a 10K run and a grand parade. There are no cars on the island — a real plus this year — and visitors get around by bike, horse-drawn carriage, or on foot.”
They add, “It’s a romantic destination for couples and fun for families with boating, fishing, exploring, and more. A range of lodging includes hotels, B&Bs, cottages, condos, and classic resorts. Family-owned and operated Mission Point Resort is set on 18 waterfront acres with six restaurants, spa, and a variety of activities. The historic Grand Hotel features guest rooms, suites, and the four-bedroom Masco Cottage, as well as spa, salon, and golf on The Jewel.” Count me in. Some of the other destinations on the list were as far away as Alaska and the United Kingdom, so we might as well enjoy a little piece of paradise close to home. Find the full list here.
