Three Great Lakes in eight days?

Jump to last reply

We are considering a driving trip to explore a bit around the shores of Lakes Superior, Huron, and Michigan in early June. We will begin or end our circuit at Detroit (baseball, Motown, and Ford museums), driving fastest interstate routes from the east coast, then taking it slowly around Michigan.

We definitely want to spend about 5 days on Mackinac Island and the UP, but could use advice on where to stay on the Lake Michigan shore and if there's a nice shore town on Lake Huron for an overnight between Detroit and Mac City. Mobility limitations keep us pretty close to the car, so we especially like scenic drives and boat tours.

Any Michigan experts out there with a few recommendations for us? Thanks for all your help--Fodorites have never let me down.
