Many midwesterners already know that summer is the perfect time to visit Michigan. Temperatures are warm but milder than southern states, and wildlife and nature are at their best. Enjoy the Great Lake State by taking your vehicle from College Chevrolet Buick on one of these scenic drives in Michigan.
Red Arrow Highway
This beautiful route will take you through some of the most charming beach towns and past the gorgeous southern coast of Lake Michigan. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to stop and explore interesting Michigan cities like Union Pier and Harbert. There are many wine vineyards to be enjoyed along this route, too—just make sure you reserve a quaint bed and breakfast or a cozy campsite to sleep it off before continuing on your course along the west side of Michigan.
If camping is definitely a goal, take M-22 north towards Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The road stretches along a different part of the Lake Michigan coast, and takes you to gorgeous destinations such as Sleeping Bear Dunes, as well as Huron-Manistee National Forests.
You haven’t really toured Michigan until you’ve also gotten a taste of the Upper Peninsula. You can catch US-2 just across the Mackinac Bridge in St. Ignace. From there, you’ll take it along the southern coast of the UP. Breathtaking sites are aplenty up here, whether you’re on the southern end or catch M-117 at Engadine to head north towards the stunning Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
