Day 3

A busy day is in store today as we travel along Michigan's beautiful western shore. First up is Silver Lake Dunes in Mears, MI. Here we will take a dune buggy ride across the Sahara-like dunes created by the Ice Age that formed the Great Lakes. Next, we will drive along Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive through Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore with spectacular overlooks of Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Stops will be made along the way to allow for photo opportunities. Then we'll continue to our lodging in Traverse City, MI.


Day 4

The highlight of the tour is today - Mackinac Island. Our visit will begin with a tour of the island. Automobiles are not permitted; therefore, our sightseeing will be by horse drawn carriages. Many ravines, natural bridges, and strange rock formations will be seen. We will also visit Old Fort Mackinac, sitting high on a bluff above the harbor, and dating from 1780. Following our tour, we will check-in at the Lake View Hotel, our lodging for the night that is brimming with Victorian charm, 19th-century architecture, and modern amenities. Conveniently located on Main Street in downtown Mackinac Island, the hotel is casual and carefree, boasting an island-style atmosphere. It is just steps from the island's best entertainment, shopping, and dining.


Day 5

Today is free to enjoy the views from the porch of the hotel, stroll the shops of Market Street, or walk some of the
island's endless nature trails. A lunch buffet will be enjoyed at the luxurious Grand Hotel before we take the ferry back to the mainland. Our lodging this evening is at the Breakers Resort in St. Ignace, MI. Please be aware that Breakers Resort does not have an elevator.

This afternoon we will arrive in the charming village of Frankenmuth, MI where you'll have free time to explore on your own before checking-in to the Bavarian Inn Lodge.


Day 7

Our destination today is Dearborn, MI where you will visit historic Greenfield Village, a collection of nearly 100 historic buildings on a 200-acre site that was established in 1933 by industrialist Henry Ford.
