The family and I are thinking about spending a week at a resort in Northern Michigan (we are a family of four, with children aged 8 and 7). We are looking at late July.
Can anyone offer ideas for nice resorts (we are willing to spend for a real nice place) or things to do?
My apologies, but I live in Florida and my experience in Michigan was limited to Detroit and my years in AA.
Thank you in advance.

I'd like to take a moment to link Spencer Hall's Mad Max: Fury Road review, because it is the finest piece of cultural literature I have ever read We all knew Spencer and the guys at EDSBS could write humerously about sports and Turkish Soccer. Turns out, he's a man with his finger on the pulse of the nation's cultural scene.
I implore you all, READ IT BECAUSE IT IS BARRENLY AWESOME LIKE THE SHAVED AND TATOOED DOME OF A POST APPOCOLYPTIC BLOOD DRINKING HELL DEMON PULLING OFF SOME EVEL KINEVEL SHIT BEFORE BLOWING UP IN MID AIR.
The saga of vandalism caused by Sigma Alpha Mu at the Treetops Resort in Gaylord last January continues. Multiple media outlets, including the Detroit News and the Michigan Daily, report that Treetops is pursuing legal action against the fraternity and at least individual fraternity members Joshua Kaplan, Zachary Levin, and Matthew Vlasic, all named in the various accounts.

The suit alleges both physical damage and loss to reputation in excess of $430,000. Insurance and a payment of $25k from the Sammies covers some but not all the alleged damage. Interestingly, the Sammies were at Treetops the year prior, and caused in excess of $11,000 in damage. At first blush, this makes you wonder why Treetops would agree to allow them to return. However, according to Treetops, a certain amount of damage is considered normal with large college student groups.
In the January incident, things went south when Treetops management confronted Sammy leaders after their first night, regarding prepayment arrangements that hadn't been met. As a result, Treetops alleges malicious and intentional retaliatory action by many of the Sammies, including urinating on carpeting in all the rooms they were using. According to Treetops, this was the first time they ever had to contact State Police to have a group evicted.

I'm a big fan of The Muppets. The TV shows, the old movies, the new movies, the Walt Disney World 3D show, pretty much all of it.
Well, they are going to have a new TV show this Fall, and I for one, am looking forward to it and all the memes it is sure to create.
