So the 1989 UM Grad family is about to embark on a "Pure Michigan" road trip. We've taken the kids to multiple places around the state...but this is our first time doing an old-school road trip with multiple stops...rather than spending a weekend in one place.
Looking for suggestions on the weird/unusual/goofy attractions at which we can stop along the way...things like The World's Largest Ball of Twine...etc.
We are coming from the Birmingham/Bloomfield area...with the 1st night in Grand Rapids, 2nd in Traverse City, 3rd on Mackinac Island, 4th in Paradise (Tequamenon Falls)...and then back home.
On the way to GR, we are planning a stop in Hell...so the theme of the trip is "From Hell to Paradise." (yes, it took many hours of brainstorming to come up with that)
I figured this topic might be useful for others planning Michigan road trips...or inspire some of you to hit the road and enjoy this beautiful state.
Thanks for your tips!
SATURDAY EDIT: Thanks to all of you for your suggestions. Even though I'm a life-long Michigander/Michiganian, there were quite a few I hadn't thought about.
