Can you mark these 5 things off of your Michigan Summer Bucket List?

Michigan has a lot to offer in Summer fun and beauty.  Some places are obvious, but a long drive from home.  Other places may be a complete surprise.

#4.  Turtle Island -  Toledo, MI

According to Wikipedia,

Turtle Island is a 1.5-acre (0.61 ha) island in the western portion of Lake Erie in the United States. The island has an unusual political status, as its jurisdiction is divided between the U.S. states of Michigan and Ohio, even though the island has no residents or current use.


#3.  The Adventure Park - West Bloomfield, MI

#2.  The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Advance warning: the hike up hill in sand to get to the gorgeous view is exhausting.  Click here to view a photo gallery of Sleeping Bear Dunes.
