Northern Michigan for the Fourth

There is no place like Northern Michigan in the summertime! There, I’ve said it! I’ve laid down the gauntlet, so I’m taking all comers to prove me wrong! Whether it’s the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, a bike ride on Mackinac Island, a swim in one of the hundreds of fantastic inland lakes, a boat ride on one of the Great Lakes, the Dunes of Sleeping Bear, this state has no competitors when the sun is shining.
We love to spend summer days playing golf and enjoying Garland Resort in Lewiston, Michigan, a sleepy little former logging town about 2/3 of the way up the center of the “mitten”. We play board games and cards, watch movies and relax. We watch the fantastic fireworks display that the resort puts on every year over the golf courses. We enjoy the ribs, pig roasts and venison chili along with the new beers and cocktail creations on the outdoor patio. We eat some of the best greasy old fashioned burgers and fries at Talleys while we try to win a few bucks playing Keno. And we never work in Northern Michigan because there is so much fun to be had and so little cell coverage!! I dare you not to like it!
