Upcoming trip to upper MI

Jump to last reply

I wasn't going to post, but could now use some help with my itinerary. Here's what I have so far, starting on July 9. We're 60-ish and very active, enjoy most sights and outdoor activities. Hate to move hotels so often, but want to see as much as possible while we're there.

Wed - visit Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, spend night nearby
Thurs - drive shoreline up to Petoskey (maybe including Leland peninsula); night in Petoskey (note: will probably skip Traverse City since it's Cherry Festival week and we don't like crowds)
Fri - Drive shoreline to Mackinaw City, walk around (maybe husband can golf 9 holes)
Sat - spend day at Mackinac Island, 2nd night in MC (doesn't seem worth the trouble and expense to stay on the island)
Sun - Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls, Whitefish Point, spend night in Paradise
Mon - Pictured Rocks & Munising, spend night in Marquette?
Tues - Keweenaw Peninsula, spend night in Copper Harbor?
Wed - drive/hike on way to Lake Gogebic (Bergland)
Thurs - hike and/or fish; second night on Lake Gogebic
Fri - drive to Minneapolis to visit a friend.
