    What is there to do in Michigan?

    Oh! There is so much to do in Michigan. In Grand Rapids, head to the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park - it's an incredible experience (eat at One Stop Coney Shop). Along the Sunset Coast (west side, Lake Michigan), there are many beautiful beaches and small towns worth discovering (my favorite is Saugatuck). Up in Traverse City, there are tons of cultural events, beaches,wineries, great food, family fun. Both Ann Arbor (UM) and East Lansing (MSU) have great college campuses, sporting and cultural events, and of course good food. Visiting Mackinac Island (right off the top of the lower peninsula) is an out-of-time experience. Great jazz at the Grand Hotel, no cars, ride bikes around the island, eat fudge! In the Upper Peninsula, you probably won't swim as much (cold water!) but the scenery (and smoked fish) are delightful. And then there is Detroit - so many great museums, cultural events, excellent food, shopping. Where are you headed? over 8 years ago

    Which places can't i miss while in scotland for 2 weeks?

    We stayed on Loch Ness (rented a house) and drove around - Inverness has a lot to offer, Culloden (LOVE IT!), Cawdor castle, Clava Cairns, watching dolphins at Chanonry Point. Definitely drive around Glen Affric. Follow the Caledonian Canal. We loved Glencoe - and Mallaig. The Islands (Skye, Eigg, etc.) are incredible. One great website is - beautiful photos, great advice, focused a lot on whisky ;) There are so many great places - 2 weeks is short!! over 8 years ago
