Northern Michigan



Today we are off to Bay Harbor for some family fun this weekend. Bay Harbor is on the northwest part of the lower peninsula of Michigan on lake Michigan. This time of year is so beautiful in northern Michigan. If you are looking for a vacation spot with your family you might want to consider this part of Michigan. There are cute towns along the coast line that offer all kinds of fun for families in every price range. The state parks on the lake are great for camping. Anyone that has one of those adorable Vintage Travel Trailers and is looking for a destination spot would have a great time up there.
You can find accommodations in all price ranges. There are little bed-and-breakfast places in Charlevoix if you like that type of thing. Petoskey offers several of the chain hotel. Boyne Highlands and Bay Harbor are larger resorts that have many attractions. Mackinac Island is a day trip away and always a fun place to take the kids.
I hope y'all have a good weekend and if you are looking for something to do come on up and visit us here in Michigan.
Hugs,
Sue

  1. I am jealous - we are in such a drought here in Texas and even with a hurricane on the coast I am not sure we will get enough rain to matter! I'd like to run away to Bay Harbor with you. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for your visit to hill country house! Ann

    It is the first time I visit your blog and I loved it.
    I'm from Portugal and, as you, I like blogging because that's how I found like-minded people.

    It looks beautiful there, but am I allowed to say that now that I'm married to an Ohio boy? LOL
