bird houseMichigan Back Roads is a Michigan vacation getaway guide organized by region. Follow the links for Terrific Towns, 3 Day Getaways, Michigan attractions, historic sites, unique lodgings, natural wonders, Michigan Gift Shops, tasty delights and Michigan day trips in each region!

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 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 attractions here and on www.upnorthmichigan.com  are also selected for their historic value and for the authentic Michigan experiences they provide. On a Michigan weekend getaway vacation we like to know where to stay, where to eat and what there is to see and do. Use the region map 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.

Find lodging by town in the Lodging section or visit www.backroadslodging.com  for reviews of unique Michigan lodgings.
