I’ve heard Mackinac island is beautiful! However they don’t allow vehicles, so you’ll need to park your car, take the ferry, and walk around


Rent a house on Lake Michigan, hike and see Pictured Rocks, spend a weekend in traverse city, check out some college town summer fun in Ann Arbor, or visit the motor city and check out the DIA, campus martius, and get a coney dog


Pictured Rocks is excellent. Northern MI or WI is great.

Where are you flying into/out of? What are your interests? Michigan is pretty big and unfortunately, a lot of the key interest sites are pretty spread out and can include a fair bit of road time.


What area of MI are you staying, I grew up there?


Heard good things about pictured rocks, also heard mackinac island is just ok. Sleeping bear dunes is pretty neat, so is traverse city if you’re going during the cherry festival. Holland is also pretty cool when they have tulip fest though I think that has passed for this year already

Lots of great comments on northern Michigan activities, also recommend eating Lebanese food - I can not get enough shawarma in my life :)

Another activity is to just rent a kayak and cruise along whether it's in Ann arbor, Alpena, or a lake- take it easy and enjoy nature

Petoskey, Charlevoix, Muskegon

Torch Lake is amazing I hear.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I am looking to stay in a central place in Michigan (not sure where exactly). I’m trying to get a mix of scenic views/top things to see

It pains to see all of us so divided. If revenge or anger or hatred guides words said and actions taken, then we have strayed from the path of humanity. A true Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist or member of any other religion or an atheist does not and should not wish for harm to befall another human being or a group of people. I truly hope one day we can all see through the shrewdness of politicians and so called religious leaders or priests who call for violence against others.

I’d like to preface this post with saying I was in a very toxic relationship previously. I went to therapy, healed myself, and now feel I have found someone very healthy.

I do a lot of the small things, make sure I’m hitting all his love languages daily, and I keep feeling like he thinks he’s doing everything to keep me happy, but
