Pure Michigan ads are made up of more than just those beautiful ads you see on television, we also advertise on billboards! From these, we have had some questions from fans, asking where the photographs were taken so that they could visit the locations first-hand! Take a look at the map below too! Maybe it’s time for a road trip?
Guest Blogger Jacqlyn Ucinski and her boyfriend weren’t just on a road trip to the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore, they were on a mission. Enjoy this story of a special road trip to Michigan’s Best Kept Secret.
I couldn’t believe it. There I was staring at a rock face dusted in vibrant colors from copper deposits with a waterfall careening down into serene turquoise waters. Is this real life? Heck, you could have told me I was in the Caribbean and I probably would have believed you. But I wasn’t in the Caribbean; I was looking at the Pictured Rocks in Munising, Michigan. A little town tucked away in the coves of the great Lake Superior. Their motto, Michigan’s best kept secret, waves proudly on the flags throughout their cozy town and all I can wonder is why did it take me this long to discover it?
Wendy McNamara from Eaton Rapids shares her experiences on the open road across Michigan as her “Pure Michigan Moment.”
Three years ago, a group of us from the Gold Wing Road Riders rode from southwest Michigan to the Upper Peninsula in search of adventure.
We rode to the Mackinac Bridge for the “Midnight Ride,” an annual juvenile diabetes fund-raiser. It was 45 degrees at dawn as 600 motorcyclists rode across the bridge. It was exhilarating and awesome.
Thanks to Melissa Mackey for sharing her story about her trip up north with her husband and teenage twins! Check out the end of the post to see the beautiful pictures she took!
This summer, instead of taking one long vacation like we usually do, my husband and I decided to take our 13 year old boy/girl twins to Northern Michigan for a long 4th of July weekend. We decided to stay in Mackinaw City and take day trips from there to Mackinac Island and the Pictured Rocks in the UP. My husband and I had been to both places before, but the kids hadn’t, so they were psyched.
