Summer To-Do List: Michigan

I cannot believe the Fourth of July is already next week, summer is flying by and I feel like I am missing out on taking advantage of prime summer weather. You know I love lists, and of course sharing them with all of you – so without further ado here is a little preview of what I want to experience in Michigan this summer.

Visit one of the 115 lighthouses throughout the state
Take a hike around the Ledges in Grand Ledge and Fitzgerald Park
Head to Port Austin to see Turnip Rock
Spend the night on a boat
Lay on a Great Lakes Beach and watch the sunrise or sunset
Ride the sand dunes at Silver Lake
Stand Up Paddleboard and check out new scenery
Take a trip along M25
Head out for a ride on the Detroit Princess Riverboat
Dine waterside
Visit the Soo Locks for Engineer’s Day (June 29)

Summer 2018 To-Do List

Happy first day of summer babes! Here in Michigan warmer temperatures only seem to be available during my work day and not on the weekend when I actually have time to have fun…. hopefully this changes now that the longest day of the year has arrived. Per usual, to help me get the most out of summer I have made a list of 19 things I want to do. Have something I should add? Leave a comment below or send me a message! P.S.
