“Up north” is a part of the vernacular of the mitten state. And for many who have lived in Michigan their whole lives, going up north means going to Traverse City or nearby areas. Perhaps one of the best known and loved destinations in the state, Traverse City feels like home to so many, even those who have only spent a week there, simply because of its modest, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you’re from Kansas or Kalkaska, once you visit Traverse City, you’ll be counting the days until you can return.
Looking for group trip ideas? How about a wine tour?
Napa Valley and Sonoma have nothing on Michigan’s wine country, which is not only producing internationally recognized wines, but offers beautiful rolling vistas and views.
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.
