The Ultimate Michigan Road Trip Is Right Here… And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It

You may have been dying to see more of the great state of Michigan but haven’t, so far, figured out how to do so in a short amount of time. It’s almost as if you need an “optimal” guide, backed up by the technology of GPS to conceive just how to pull it off. That’s where Michigan native Randy Olson comes into play. He’s made a name for himself for creating such maps for every state in the country, including our beloved Mitten.

Olson’s Michigan map spanned 2,098-miles and 43 sites all over the state – both Lower and Upper peninsulas included. He claims the entire trip should take about 40 hours on the road. While fall may just be the best time of the year for such a trip, we can’t help but feel like this comprehensive map will serve as a great visual check list any time of the year for those of you who want to get as much out of this beautiful state as possible.

Here’s his map, along with 19 photos of highlights in alphabetically order from this ultimate road trip. And make sure to click here for the full list and a link to Olson’s interactive map.
