Awesome! I love the Upper Peninsula. My great aunt and uncle built a log cabin resort on Foote Lake, in Delta County.  It is now called Burson's Delta Resort, owned by Ted and Louise Burson. They purchased it from my aunt and uncle; Evelyn & Tony Mintonye, back in the early 1960's. I have many fond memories of my childhood near Manistique, and all over the Upper Peninsula.

The show was awesome! My daughter just learned about Michigan this past year in school (3rd grade). I asked her where she would like to go on our summer vacation, she answered right away; the upper peninsula. We will be traveling to the U.P. this summer for our vacation this year. This shows the areas we will be visiting.  We love your shows! Thank you, keep up the good work.

Absolutely love your videos/shows! I remember when they were called "Discovering the Northern Experience" back in the 90s/early 2000s. I used to sit and watch these shows with my grandparents who have since passed. You are a very inspiring cast and keep up the good films! I'd called them "work" but I am guessing it's far closer to a labor of love. Best wishes - Kevin

Loved it! Now I want to go camping, canoeing and trail walking in the Upper Peninsula. Used to go every year to visit my mom's hometown of Rapid River, but haven't been in a while.

We love the show, Tom. We've frequently made travel plans to visit places you've featured. We loved the Tawas area, but never would have gone there if we hadn't seen it on Great Getaways! We're kayakers and it sure looks like the Manistique area would be perfect for some fall paddling. Thanks for everything you do to promote our state.

Guys, love the show! Last year I watched your program on one of your U.P. adventures. You visited Marquette along with Presque isle. I swear that while on Presque isle, you went to a hidden waterfall that only locals know of? I went there last year and loved it about as much as the flies loved me. I want to go back to see more. Thanks, Jeff

Great show, keep up the good work! Last week, you folks shown a covered bridge over a stream or river. I really like these scenes. Another bridge is in Frankenmuth, MI. All wooden and hand built, I am told, over the Cass river. Quite a feat. - Mike

My family was in Ludington this summer and just loved it. We did not know that Baldwin offered so much. In 2018, we are planning our next trip to Baldwin! Great Show, I am always looking for a place to drop my line. Thanks!

Barney Ware - Interlochen, MI

It was great! It (Where is Baldwin) showed me areas I did not know about. Even though I was born and raised in Manistee. I hope to get there.

My wife and I enjoyed this episode and we are planning our fall getaway in the West Branch area. Thanks again!

I recognized lumberman's monument as soon as we flipped to PBS tonight. I spent time with my 10 year old nephew there last summer and walked all the steps. He was lucky enough to get to spend time at their archeological excavation and find some cool artifacts. As a school teacher with a sense of adventure, and his eager spirit ready to explore and learn, we'd love to share our insights into our Michigan vacations if you're ever looking for a kids-eye-view of our great state.

It was packed with great information (Autumn in Tawas Bay)!
