Michigan Travel Guide

Walk the school’s central campus to admire the mid-1800s architecture.

Selling only the best hats crafted in Europe and the U.S. has been the single-minded focus of Henry the Hatter, which has been in Detroit since 1893 and at this location since 1952.

Eclectic lounge. Brothers Jeremy and Daniel Haberman named The Bosco for their middle school playground.

Pick up some homemade fudge at this Mackinac shop - open since 1887.

Taste or pick the fruits—raspberries, cherries, peaches, plums, grapes—at the 150-year-old, family-owned winery.

A sandy stretch with picket fencing, wild beach grass, and surprisingly temperate water.

The region’s premier museum, the Henry Ford is a breathtaking repository for the history of innovation. The sprawling indoor-outdoor collection, located just a few miles from downtown Detroit, would take days to see in its entirety.

Crossing borders in the days of tightened security can be a hassle, but it’s worth hopping over the Detroit River for a day trip into Canada.

This gorgeous park near Thunder Bay, Canada, is the largest island in the world’s largest freshwater body, Lake Superior. Though it ranks as the fifth least-visited park (14,000 annual visitors) in the nation, it has the highest backcountry use.

Not far from Hockeytown Café, this sleek martini bar caters to an entirely different clientele, more akin to SoHo than the heartland. The first and mezzanine floors are full of intimate nooks, especially the mezzanine, whose curving couches hug the wall.

Drive the 7.4-mile, self-guided tour of forest, dunes, and Lake Michigan vistas.

A 15-mile stretch of sandstone cliffs and caverns on the shore of Lake Superior. The Pictured Rocks’ names derived from the erosion that sculpted the cliffs into profiles, including Indian Head, and architectural formations, such as Miners Castle.
