Mackinac Island is a beautiful little area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Accessible only by ferry, no cars are allowed on the island. Instead, visitors must get around on bicycle or by a horse carriage. It is a step back in time to visit, and well worth at least a two-day jaunt.
The Windy City. We hadn’t been to Chicago in a long time. The first time we went, it was for our first wedding anniversary. It made sense to visit for our 11th anniversary in December. It’s a great weekend trip from Columbus. If you’ve never visited, you should consider a trip soon.
Road-tripping through the former Yugoslavia (aka the Balkans, aka the coast of the Adriatic, aka eastern Europe) was an incredible experience. There are so many sights to see, and cultures to explore, and of course you can’t see it all. This is what we did, how we did it and what we saw.
Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes and the world’s largest freshwater lake. It is moody, strong and deep. It’s cold, but clear. It’s deep, but clean. It looks different throughout the day and at different vantage points. It’s mysterious and rocky. It is something you want to see.
Hocking Hills provides some of the best outdoor exploration that the state of Ohio has to offer. It has waterfalls, caves, trails overlooking the forest, and wildlife galore. We had a great time exploring Hocking Hills and making Cherry Ridge Retreat our jumping off point to explore the region.
