We take a complete tour of the peninsula that we fondly call the thumb of Michigan’s mitt. Surrounded by water, this part of Michigan is full of great outdoor activities. Our tour includes sightseeing, historic stops, great food and fun in the water and on land. The Thumb is loaded with campgrounds and we visit the best in a new segment called Camping Country. Don’t miss the opportunity to vote on your favorite as we “Tour the Thumb.”

We will take you to some of Michigan’s finest attractions as we sit inside this large limousine and leave the driving to someone else. From Dahlia Hill to World War II Battleship Edson, it is a trip for all ages.

It wasn't until the onset of the twentieth century that things like admiring nature became fashionable in the United States. People like President Theodore Roosevelt, and author John Muir, helped to popularize setting aside public lands for the preservation of wildlife and other natural resources. Because of this foresight, Michigan's residents and visitors can enjoy one of the nation's premier park systems.

8007 lighthouse tour 04/23/15

Lighthouses standing majestically on a shoreline or an island conjure up images of romance and adventure. As picturesque as they are, their flashing lights served a necessary, practical function for mariners of the past. The waters of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay can be treacherous--many an unfortunate ship didn't weather the storm, even with the aid of a lighthouse beacon! This trip will take us to 8 different lighthouses all located on Lake Huron in Bruce County.
