Deer Widows Weekend

This weekend kicks off firearm season, the weekend where hunters stream into Michigan's woods and fields in search of their white-tailed prize.  In the meantime, "deer widows" begin a hunt of their own - looking for shopping deals, weekend getaways, wine tours, and more.

On the hunt for a place to escape to this weekend? 

Check out the hotels and resorts offering special packages and pricing that give you the chance to relax and pamper yourself.

Feel more like bargain hunting? 

Check out the great deals being offered by Prime Outlets in Birch Run, and the Scrapbooking Weekend at the Raymond House Inn in Port Sanilac.

Hunting for a different kind of diversion? 

Well, grab your friends and head to Bay City for Sunday's In The City, where they showcase all the unique businesses Bay City has to offer, along with holiday decorations and strolling carolers.  Or maybe you'd rather head up to Traverse City for Toast the Season, an event where you are invited to taste and tour up to 16 wineries.  If you're going to be in the Detroit area, check out The Inn on Ferry Street, offering the "DIA: Let Yourself Go" weekend package that includes 2 tickets to the Detroit Institute of Arts.
