100% do not assume he’ll foot all the bills. Otherwise agree with S1s post

Unless he’s your sugar daddy, you gotta pay for part of it.

I would definitely be open about how you two want to split costs or if you planned to at all. If you present what you think is fair and he goes “Oh I was just going to take care of it” then you’re set, otherwise make the trip cost something that’s comfortable for you as well.

You make 6 figures and yet expect to not contribute to any of the trip costs?

Wow... It surprises me the kinds of questions some people have. Every couple is different though but yeah, I would go for "never assume anything"

Go to Grand Haven!! My bf and I take a trip there every year from Chicago. Cute small town where you can go to the beachfront and pier, and there are good restaurants, a few wineries and breweries. Overall a good time. I know this was not your question whatsoever but wanted to share
