Labor Day Weekend Upper Michigan

Jump to last reply

We just realized we will be arriving in Chicago from Europe on Friday of Labor Day weekend to start a 3 week trip. Arrival about 1:00 p.m. at O'Hare. We had planned a first night at Kalamazoo and then Saturday to Traverse City. Any advice on Labor Day weekend traffic and best route from O'Hare to Kalamazoo? Or should we stay overnight closer to O'Hare and start our drive Saturday morning? I looked at the ferry schedules from Milwaukee and Manitowoc but the times do not seem very attractive. Appreciate your input.
N.B. After Traverse City we are heading up to Sault Ste. Marie and then west across Canada but wanted to get a glimpse of beautiful upper Michigan on our way. We've been through Door County and that direction.
Many thanks for your help,
