I loved your show today about the Upper Peninsula trail. What is the name of the camping park in Manistique, MI that you were at? We would like to stay there.

Hi Matt, it was the Manistique Lakeshore Campground.

Sat 2/10/2018 5:57 PM
Barney Ware - Interlochen, MI

I really liked it! We go to Manistique often, but was not aware of the new campground. Also, that little store you stopped at too. We will be going that route again this year to visit what we missed before. Thank you!
Sat 2/10/2018 2:59 PM
JR Lomerson - Attica, MI

Thoroughly enjoyed todays episode along Lake Michigan shoreline. I have seen some of the attractions, but not all. The lighthouse at Gulliver is a must. Thanks for a great idea. Can't wait for Spring 2018 to start taking more Northern trips and great getaways. Thanks again, guys.

Leslie Reed - Hazel Park, MI

I was really excited about all the places I can go to do some fishing and camping. They looked so good and so does the untouched areas that are in my state! It's been too, darn long since I'd done that kind of fishing and camping. Good job guys!
Mon 2/5/2018 7:45 PM

JR and Nancy Lomerson - Attica, MI

We so enjoy your show! This week’s episode was especially interesting to my wife and I. We really enjoy the opportunity to take long walks, and this week’s show really hit the spot. We try to get out and see as many of these sites as able. We try to plan day trips and get out to see and walk many of the sites you have shown in recent shows. Keep up the good work.

JR Lomerson - Attica, MI

I love the Tawas Area. I will drive from Lapeer area to Tawas for just a day trip. I really enjoy the Point with the state park, lighthouse, and the walk to the point. And, most of all, the River Road area. Keep up the great work for a Great day or weekend Getaways.

Mark Swisz - Taylor, MI

I love the Munising area in the U.P., snowmobiled there many times, but never made it to the ice caves. Always wanted to, maybe next time I'm there.
Wed 1/24/2018 6:06 PM
Kevin Johnson - Leamington, ON

My wife and really enjoyed today's program about Michigan's northern peninsula. Wonderful program!
Wed 1/24/2018 6:00 PM
Joan Boddie - Ann Arbor, MI

I loved it! I have never been to the Upper Peninsula. To see it covered with ice and snow was dazzling. I am determined to get up there and see it for myself.
Wed 1/24/2018 6:01 PM
Ron Karvonen - Waterford, MI

Just caught the tail end - but loved it! My roots are the Keweenaw on both sides of my family. Say yah to da U.P., eh!

Philip Harry - Reading, MI

I loved it! My wife and I vacationed to Sault Ste. Marie, Whitefish Point, Taquamanon Falls, Marquette this past summer and again in the early fall. Took the Agawa train trip, too.  Never have been there in the winter, though. Now I want to go back in the winter! Will plan on it next winter (other plans set for the rest of this winter.) Thanks so much for the show.
Tue 1/23/2018 4:01 PM
Kathy Everhart - Laingsburg, MI

Wow! I stumbled across this episode today! Wanted to run out, buy a snowmobile and travel all over the Upper Peninsula! I spent a short vacation in some of those locations a couple summers ago, but now I'm inspired to get up there during the winter! Thanks so much for sharing this! Great photography, great narration, great destinations!
Tue 1/23/2018 1:07 PM
George D Clottin - Onondaga, MI

Awesome travel ideas for places in our Michigan's Upper Peninsula to visit! Definitely will take the family on the train. Looking forward to our travel to the Upper Peninsula and rid the family of cabin fever.
Tue 1/23/2018 1:04 PM
David Conrad - Stockbridge, MI

Beautiful! My husband was born and raised up there (Upper Peninsula), so thought that he would really enjoy this episode.
Tue 1/23/2018 12:57 PM

I thought it was amazing, and how beautiful the picture rock lake shore is in the winter months.
Tue 1/23/2018 9:58 AM

Wonderful. I love the pictures of the Upper Peninsula in winter.
Tue 1/23/2018 6:05 AM

Amazing show! I am looking to explore upper Michigan after watching.
Mon 1/22/2018 8:43 PM
Barbara Ogletree - Blanchard, MI

Such beautiful sites in the winter of the U.P., and information about the different places in the Upper Peninsula. That I wasn't even familiar with, but after watching the show I would really want to go visit. Also learned about the book or movie from there in the 1950's. Thank you for the wonderful show of our state. Look forward to many more shows. Thank you!
Mon 1/22/2018 8:28 PM

What a great show!!!
Mon 1/22/2018 8:17 PM
Mary Diehl - Petoskey, MI

After being on a boat trip around Grand Island, I especially loved that segment. I love the Tahquamenon Falls area and the White Fish Point Paradise area (that we fish quite often). This winter trip was so beautiful and would watch it again with my daughter and her family. Thank you for making this possible. Love your programs.
Mon 1/22/2018 8:14 PM
Eleanor Gracin - Lake Orion, MI

it was great! Enjoyed the whole show. We watch it every week, every chance we get.
Mon 1/22/2018 8:08 PM
Deb Mannion - Dryden, MI

This episode was awesome! My family and I were just up in the Paradise area snowmobiling the weekend of January 12-15, 2018. We go at least once or twice a season to this area. One of our favorite spots to snowmobile.  We snowmobiled to Big Bay last February and stayed at Thunder Bay Inn. We also walked over to Lumberjack for a beer.  Absolutely LOVE seeing the U.P. on this show. Thank you, Deb Mannion
Mon 1/22/2018 8:03 PM
Connie Davis - Fenton, MI

AWESOME! I had no idea how beautiful Michigan can be during the Winter. I'm 70 years old, and will probably never have the opportunity to experience this adventure on a snowmobile. Thank you for an enjoyable evening of travel. Connie Davis
Mon 1/22/2018 8:03 PM
Deborah Minyard - Waterford, MI

I was absolutely riveted watching this and the beauty of it in the winter time. It was so cool, because I could sit here and say I've been there to that place. Unfortunately, never in the winter time. Thank you for taking me there in the winter.
Mon 1/22/2018 8:00 PM
Bruce L. Dunn - Leland, MI

Always love seeing Michigan trips and destinations shows in all seasons. Thank you for bringing these programs into our home!

Brenda Kragt - Kalamazoo, MI

Loved the show about Taquemenon Falls, Pictured Rocks, the point, etc. Saw these areas in the summer with relatives from the Netherlands. Perhaps then they'll come back to visit Michigan. Thanks.
Sun 1/21/2018 4:27 PM
Robert Bohjanen - Kentwood, MI

I have seen similar shows in the past, but this episode was very well done in telling the story of winter getaways in Michigan. I always enjoy Sunday mornings watching Great Getaways!
Sun 1/21/2018 12:31 PM
Anne Bradford - Grand Haven, MI

Absolutely fabulous!
Sun 1/21/2018 12:04 PM
Janet Durvesh - Grand Rapids, MI

It was a great show. I’ve been to Taquananon falls in September and winter 20+ years ago. Never got the chance to go back again. I was living in Texas for 10 years, and missed all things Michigan. These kinds of shows renew my interest in rediscovering more of Michigan I’ve seen, or would like to discover. The areas featured in this video will be a great start. Thanks, Janet Durvesh
Sun 1/21/2018 12:01 PM
Vic Bella - Saugatuck, MI

Loved it! I have visited many of the places. Thanks for sharing!
Sun 1/21/2018 12:58 AM

I found it to be very interesting. Loved everything that was shown, very beautiful. Especially the train ride. I enjoy watching Great Getaways.
Sat 1/20/2018 4:53 PM
Robert Tuggle - Hale, MI

Was such a difference seeing many of the locations in the winter. I have visited the Tahquamenon falls both in the summer and winter. My wife and I have visited the U.P. every summer since retiring in late November 2011 with our small motorhome. Many visits to Whitefish Point, Vermilion, Perkins Park in Big Bay, ate several times at the Lumber Jack Tavern. Walked the town of Big Bay several times, visited Grand Marais (Woodland Park), Lake Superior Brewing (Enjoyed the fresh broiled whitefish), rock shop and hardware store in Grand Marais. Our favorite is the Keweenaw from Michigan Technological University (alma mater) to Fort Wilkins State Park. Loved your show, would like the wife to see it. Thanks, Bob Tuggle.
Sat 1/20/2018 4:42 PM
Sally Landeryou - Saginaw, MI

Loved this week’s show. I love the U.P. that I've seen in the summer, and it is awesome to see what I've missed in the winter. Our state has so much history, and lakes with so much danger and beauty it defies imagination. I am sending the video to my son in- law in Georgia who loves snowmobiling and wants to move to Michigan. Watch out daughter, you may be practicing law in the U.P.!
Sat 1/20/2018 4:27 PM
Rose Respondek - Bad Axe, MI

Beautiful! I love being able to see the different areas that I will never make it to.

Thu 1/18/2018 4:43 PM
Mike Crafton - Auburn, MI

Myself and my wife have camped in Tawas, but we didn’t realize all the area had to offer. I did like the episode on the Tawas area, and we’ll be watching for shows on the different areas you go to.
Tue 1/16/2018 9:02 PM
Shelley Gross - Saginaw, MI

It made me want to go out and buy a snowmobile. I've been in Texas for the last 18 years. Your show showed me what I've been missing. Thank you!
Tue 1/16/2018 4:58 PM
Russell Lowe - Saint Johns, MI

This episode was great! Just bought a cabin and acreage in Manistique, learned a few things that I didn't know about the environmental trail.
Tue 1/16/2018 1:06 PM
Angela Gilkerson - Flint, MI

Loved it! I am always looking for places for my family to have fun in the winter. It's too easy to become a coach potato in the colder months. This gives us something to get us out and moving. Really love the snowmobile trails part. Keep up the good work!
Tue 1/16/2018 6:00 AM
Michael Hudack - Pontiac, MI

I really enjoy the show! My father and I used to go up north all the time. Until he fell ill and passed away few months ago. I found out I had stage 3 lymph node cancer - I'm only 32. I have a 3-year-old daughter. Hopefully the treatment fixes my problem, so me and my daughter can go up and enjoy the U.P. like me and my father.
Mon 1/15/2018 7:57 PM
Deborah Neubrcker - West Branch, MI

We have a cabin in Schoolcraft County near Gulliver, and its always great to hear about new adventures we could have when we visit our ‘other home’!
Mon 1/15/2018 6:17 PM
Regina Miller - Monroe, GA

We really enjoyed it!  We are anticipating traveling from Atlanta, GA in the summer for our 5th anniversary. What a beautiful place you portrayed and shared.

It was very informative, and very well written/delivered. I like it, when after watching such a show, you want to go there now!
Sat 1/13/2018 4:31 PM

Very interesting, and I liked what I saw. I would love to go visit (Manistique).
