The state of Michigan has become a gambling mecca. And with 23 Michigan casinos across two beautiful peninsulas, there’s no shortage of places to test your luck.

Detroit prides itself in providing exceptional gaming experiences at three impressive establishments — Greektown Casino, MGM Grand Detroit, and MotorCity Casino — but even the most dedicated gamers could use a change of scenery from this trio of Motor City venues.

Indian Trails has just expanded its Tuesday casino service to FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek, adding six Metro-Detroit pick-up locations. Bonus: Indian Trails and FireKeepers have partnered to provide free casino slot play to seniors 55 years and older on Tuesdays.

Posted by Chad Cushman

Jun 7, 2017 10:45:00 AM

There are few things that mesh as well as ‘summer’ and ‘road trips.’ Let’s be honest, that feeling of being on the open road without a care in the world is quite liberating. Exploring new sites, experiencing new scenery, and taking in that fresh summer air. All play a role in the great American road trip.

But those picturesque road trips could also turn into nightmares. You could get stuck in traffic for hours on end, hitting rush-hour as your air conditioning decides to stop working. Or, you could get a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. These scenarios happen more often than you think.

So why not experience the open road in the comfort of a modern motorcoach? You’ll be free from stressful driving, plus you get free Wi-Fi, power outlets, reclining seats, and more. There’s nothing not to love about taking a bus trip this summer.

We thought we could help as you plan where to take your trip when the possibilities are endless; so here are five fun bus trips that you would love to take this summer.

There’s nothing quite like a summer day at Comerica Park.

There’s no doubt about it — once you’re inside the ballpark, you’re almost guaranteed an enjoyable experience. But the hassle before and after the game can make a trip to see the Tigers seem like a hard day’s work.
