“A day trip to Munising to visit this National Lakeshore is well worth the trip! See some of the most spectacular views Lake Superior has to offer. You can stop at the National Park office when you get to Munising for maps and suggestions for hiking. If hiking is not your thing, taking a boat cruise or kayaking along the cliffs is also amazing. If you do head to Munising, be sure to stop in Falling Rock Cafe for some coffee and ice cream, browse the wonderful selection of new and used books they have. They have frequent local live music as well!”

“This agri-tourism destination up the hill from Thorne Swift has pretty much everything for a perfect autumnal excursion: a farm market, a farm-to-table cafe, a winery, a brewery, farm animals that kids (and adults, of course) can feed and pet, six miles of trails, and more. From Sept. 28th through October 27th, 2019, the farm's "Fall Fest" weekends include pumpkin picking, pumpkin smashing, cider and doughnuts, and a massive squash rocket that launches squash far into a nearby field. (Admission for Fall Fest is free; certain activities are priced individually.)”

Bridge
“Opened in 1957 this was the longest bridge in the world for a number of years. It still ranks in the top 10 world wide longest suspension bridges. The bridge is approximately a 1 hour drive from the cottage and crossing it takes you to the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan.”

“A local fav, with a free ski run for children (and adults) located near the "Barney Lift" as we call it because of its purple color. Nubs has spectacular views of Little Travers Bay and plenty to keep skiers and boarders happy--check out their terrain park. Nub’s Nob is still the only Midwestern area ever to garner North American Gold Medals from SKI Magazine when it was voted #1 for terrain parks and #4 for grooming in 2007 and into the Top Ten of all the US and Canada ski resorts for snow, grooming, and value in 2002. ”
