Hi, I will be driving from Madison Wisconsin to Niagara Falls in June and will be crossing the border at Sault Ste Marie. I would really appreciate some advice on the following: For an overnight stay which would you recommend, the usa or ontario side of the border? What route would you recommend for the onward journey? Is there a route that includes a car ferry crossing? 13 years ago I did a long drive around the great lakes and I remember taking a car ferry but cannot remember where from or where it arrived (across part of lake huron maybe?) I do remember really enjoying that ferry trip though and would love to find it again to enjoy with my children. I seem to recall spending a few hours on a lovely beach after the ferry crossing. Any clues and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Looking to plan a late summer or early fall trip to Mackinac Island. Any advice on reasonable places to stay either on the island or close-by on the mainland. We would camp or get a hotel depending on convenience. Also, are there any must-see things around this area?
I know the Michigan Flyer runs to/from the airport and Lansing with stops in Ann Arbor and Jackson along the way, but I'm having trouble finding anything similar that goes to/from Flint. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Hi everyone, My girlfriend and I are going to be celebrating our 5 year anniversary and we are looking for a nice place to stay for the weekend to get away. We are both 20 years old so I know that makes it a little bit difficult to find somewhere that will let us book a room. We are looking for something to just relax and get away from work and enjoy a weekend together with some good food nearby. We aren't really a fan of B and B's but would like someplace nice to stay that is not too expensive. We live about 45 minutes north of Detroit and are willing to travel a few hours, but stay in the state. Thank you for any help -Andrew
We will be staying in Detroit city and are interested in visiting the Henry Ford Museum. We were unsure of a few things as we do not have a vehicle and will be relying on public transport. 1. How long does it take to have a look at the museum? 2. What is the best way to get there and back without a car? Is the Amtrak from Detroit to Dearborn the best option, or there other ways? cheers Dean
We're planning a camping trip up to the Traverse City area for the end of the month. There are a handful of breweries/bars in town that we'd like to hit up in town at least one of the days, but we don't want to have to drive into town to do that (because then we can't drive back to the campsite - or one person would have to not drink - which isn't much fun since there's only 2 of us). So does anyone have a recommendation for a place to camp that we might also be able to get a taxi and/or some kind of shuttle that can take us into town and then later back to the campsite?
Is it possible to get to the Henry Ford Museum by Public Transport from Downtown?
I am looking to contact a cab company that I rode with on 12/27/11. Any idea what company might have dark green minivan cabs? I am almost sure it was a Dodge or Chrysler.
Anyone know any interesting small towns in Michigan? Places with a few nice bars and restaurant and traditional buildings etc. Many thanks, Pb Dancing

Hi! I am planning a trip to North Manitou with a mid size group, perhaps 5-10 people, possibly including two kids ages 7 and 8. I would love to do a 2 night trip but I have a feeling I will get a better response for a 1 nighter for various reasons. So my question is... is there a recommended route for the following schedule: after getting off the ferry, doing a mid-length hike (maybe 8 miles max), while seeing some nice lookouts, swimming at a nice beach (or in the one of the inland lakes?), and then camping in a relatively quiet place with few bugs, with the goal of having a shorter hike in the morning to get back in time for the ferry back to Leland with time to spare? I saw that someone recommend camping at the Village for the last night, but since I want to plan only 1 night, that won't work because part of the fun will be the backcountry camping aspect. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! Shirlee Berman
how much does it cost to get in??

My family and I plan to enter Sault St Marie ON from the Michigan side. However car rental cars are not allowed to enter. How do tourists without their own cars cross over the border? Are there public transport systems available?
Can anyone recommend a nice cabin, or condo to rent near Battle Creek, Michigan? How are the cabins on Gun Lake? We do not want to be disturbed by late-night partiers. Thanks.
Hi, I will be arriving at DTW on an international flight and only have 1 hr 20 min to my connecting flight. Is this enough time to go through immigration and check-in to my next flight? In LAX, you have to claim your luggage and check it again to the connecting flight. Does DTW have the same rules? Any airport tips on how to save time would be appreciated. Btw, I have Delta flights.
We are driving up to Saugatuck for a couple of days. First day will be sunny, second day will be cold and rainy. We are people that enjoy good food (not "fine dinig" necesarily), hiking, walks along the lake, and historic sites. Any recommendations?
Hi, I'm travelling to Detroit for the first time for an interview. My interview's at a building on Moross Road. They've recommended a few hotels in Roseville, most of which are 10-15 mins away from the info I've been sent. I was wondering what the best way would be to get from DTW airport to this area? What if I took a cab? How much would that cost me? I'm not too keen on the idea of renting a car since I'm flying back the very next day. And any feedback of any of the hotels in the Roseville area would be great too. Thanks.
My Aunt and Uncle lived in South Haven Michigan for years before they both died at a good age. i can just remember they lived on a road called Route 5 zone 49090 could someone confirm if there is such a place. I visited there three times but dont know if the address is correct. Thanking You
