Western Michigan what are the must see and do

We will be driving up to the UP along Lake Michigan. What are the must see and must do places? We are not looking to sit at a beach.

1. Re: Western Michigan what are the must see and do

Lots of cute towns for exploring all along the Western Michigan coastline of Lake Michigan. Start at the Bottom and go north . Some favorites for me are Warren Dunes State park north of New Buffalo -- take Red Arrow Highway to St Joseph, the town of St Joseph -- of course! ( It is actually my favorite and It just keeps getting better!) the Red arrow and BLue Star highway to South Haven, Saugutuk, Holland, Grand Haven, Pentwater, Luddington, -- and the magnificent State Park along the lake . the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City -- then on up by Charlevoix and Petosky and Harbor Springs. Then the Mackinaw City. Then a must is to take the ferry to Mackinac Island for at least the day. Hopefully you will have several days to explore the towns along the ways. there are farm stands for lots of fresh fruit -- amazing fruit !!, Bike trails, charter fishing, kayaking, Wineries, Lighthouses all along the way -- beaches to walk on, Sunsets to see and ice cream to eat. Favorites are Hudsonville icecream , Sherman Ice cream, Kilwins. Enjoy! www.sjtoday.org

If looking for nice dinner go to Tosi's in Stevensville and Clementines in South Haven. Both places been around for years for good reason. Farmers mkt in South Haven is 8am to 2pm Wed & Sat. It is nice. Try Riverbend farms in South Haven for the best raspberries & blackberries ever.picked or u pick.. just off blue star hwy on 72nd st. They are also at the farmers mkt. Finish with some hometown made Shermans ice cream in South Haven get it at Shermans dairy where it is made, or at Captain Nemos downtown.
