These are the things that if I HAD to leave Michigan, I would think about EVERY day. There are so many, so I am not gonna make a huge list... but the four that come to mind right away...(because they have left such a big impact on me)...Copper Harbor, Whitefish Point, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Au Sable River area.

Glen Arbor and Leland on a hot summer's day are my "must sees" for Michigan. My first trips there were in the summer, and I just couldn't believe the feeling of the places. It was especially so for Leland; it's a special place in my opinion.

Any specific spot on the AuSable you favor over another? I grew up around the AuSable so I guess I got used to it and wasn't such a big deal but after some contemplation, I'll have to say it's quite grand.

The last half of it with all the hills and sand dunes. Basically its the "River Road National Scenic Byway" with all the lookouts. We go camping around the Glennie area quite a bit, and love it. I grew up going to our cottage west of Hale...and spent many a day in the area. Just love being up that way in the Huron National Forest.

Old Mission Point Lighthouse on Traverse Bay, in July when cherries are ready. The bay water is a gorgeous color there because it is so shallow. Used to take the kids for 2wks every summer. They loved the water and always found something interesting thee.

Old Mission Point Lighthouse and everything else about Old Mission is wonderful. Sutton's Bay is also really nice.
