Towns and Trails takes a road trip!

Don’t panic! We’re just on vacation for a couple of weeks. Dave and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary with a road trip to Lake Michigan. In an effort to be sensitive to his aversion to flying, I’ve planned a road trip that will take us to an area of the country neither of us has seen before – the Great Lakes! (Yes, I am a total sucker for the Pure Michigan travel ads.)

We’re driving from Boston to Saugatuck, Michigan where we’ll explore the Lake Michigan beachtowns. Then we’ll head up the “coast” to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to do some camping. Next we’ll tour the wineries near Traverse City and then take a day trip to Mackinac Island. We’ll head home through Niagara Falls so I can check it off my “things to do before I die list.”

We won’t abandon you completely though. Check back for updates from the road – we’ll try to post an image a day from our travels. Happy summer to all!

      The trip was wonderful! And thanks again for a great night. Can’t wait to share more of the photos with you. Jess and I (ok.. ok.. mostly Jess) are working on a full trip report – we hope to have it posted early next week.
