I travel to Michigan often since my daughter and her family live there, but this time I by-passed the family vacation and explored parts of western Michigan for a week. The trip started in Saugatuck at a bed and breakfast right on the water. We loved swimming and boat rides in Lake Michigan, we hiked, rode dune buggies, and enjoyed the wonderful food and beverages Michigan had to offer.

The Perfect Weekend Getaway is Only 4 Hours from the Quad Cities
