These 14 Unique Day Trips In Michigan Are An Absolute Must Do

Ah, springtime in Michigan. That magical time of year when the weather can range between Polar Vortex and easy breezy from one day to the next. This time of year, we can’t invest in a whole elaborate trip because we don’t quite know whether we’ll need a swimsuit or a parka. Herein lies the day trip. Long enough to whet our wanderlust appetite, but short enough that we don’t have to check the 7-day forecast to plan ahead. Here are a few of our favorite low-commitment day trips, no matter where you live in Michigan.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
