Michigan might be the most diverse state in the nation when it comes to the natural beauty it has to offer. Michigan getaways include lighthouses, waterfalls, sand dunes, unique historic destinations, lakes, Quick & Easy Getaways,  and out of the way day trips. You can take a drive of one hour to a wild flower sanctuary, unique shop or local museum. You can set out for a Michigan 3 Day Getaway, starting each day in unique beautiful lodgings while exploring the hidden and lesser known attractions in every region of Michigan.

Terrific Towns are the perfect destinations for your short Michigan day trip or 3 day Michigan getaway. Each town has pages showing the quality of life, shopping, food, side trips, festivals, nature areas, museums and other Michigan attractions. I have visited and photographed each of these towns to ensure accuracy and that you can find the kind of fun you want on your Michigan road trip or 3 day weekend getaway.

The Michigan Day Trips in each region are day trips to destinations and events that are often overlooked because they are in very small towns. This site is not intended to be all things about Michigan. It is a collection Michigan road trips to special places that are often overlooked.


The Michigan Getaways are here and on www.upnorthmichigan.com  are also selected for their historic value and for the authentic Michigan experiences they provide. On a Michigan overnight getaway we like to know where to stay, where to eat and what there is to see and do. Use the region map or the 3 Day Getaway section to explore Michigan getaway possibilities by region. The Michigan Attractions page has an easy to use list if you know what you are looking for.
