#OnTheRoad: Gadling Instagram From Lake Michigan

#OnTheRoad: Gadling Instagram From Lake Michigan Jun 19th, 2013 at 7:00AM: Adia WellsMichigan's Grand Haven State Park Come on in, the water's - well, it's freezing. (Seriously, the girl in this photo is nuts.) But that isn't keeping me away from my first trip to the breathtaking shores of Lake Michigan, also known as the country's Third Coast. Though I've lived in Indiana most of my life, I have always passed over Lake Michigan for the spun-sugar shores of Florida's...

$56 A Night To Pitch A Tent? Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

$56 A Night To Pitch A Tent? Happy Memorial Day Weekend! May 21st, 2013 at 10:00AM: Since when did camping become expensive? I live in Chicago and have spent a ridiculous amount of time researching places to camp over the Memorial Day weekend in the last two weeks. If I had planned ahead, booking a campsite would be quick and easy but we tend not to plan very far in advance, which makes travel during holidays complicated and sometimes expensive. We wanted to camp at Devil's...

Roadside America: St. Joseph, Michigan

Roadside America: St. Joseph, Michigan Oct 17th, 2012 at 9:00AM: Growing up in Boston and later Tucson, I grew up going on beach vacations in New England and California. It wasn't until I started dating my husband a decade ago that I discovered America's "Third Coast" (the Great Lakes, for our purposes, though some call the Gulf states the Third Coast) in the Midwest. Visiting my in-laws in St. Joseph, Michigan, I was amazed to see that you don't need to go...

The Soo Locks Of Sault Ste. Marie

The Soo Locks Of Sault Ste. Marie Jul 20th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Michigan's Upper Peninsula is an often overlooked travel destination. Sandwiched between three of the Great Lakes, the U.P. is a remote and rugged wilderness that features hundreds of miles of trail, incredibly dense forests and more solitude than anyone could ever ask for. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the options for hiking, camping and backpacking, while other visitors will enjoy the scenic...

Iconic Road Trips: Around Michigan's Upper Peninsula With US Highway 2

Iconic Road Trips: Around Michigan's Upper Peninsula With US Highway 2 May 24th, 2012 at 2:00PM: US Highway 2, through Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is pristine. This stretch of road is so relatively far out of the way that its untouched beauty is its main attraction. This trip is 290 miles. You'll want to stop off and take a dip every time you see the waters of Lake Michigan glistening beyond the birch trees, and so you should. That's what I did when I drove across this portion of Highway...

Racing the wind on a frozen Michigan lake

Racing the wind on a frozen Michigan lake Mar 2nd, 2012 at 8:00AM: A frozen lake on Michigan's Upper Peninsula seems an unlikely place to hold a world championship event – particularly in February. Yet that is exactly where I found myself this past weekend as I watched more than 40 competitors from around the globe zip to and fro across the ice propelled by nothing more than the wind. I made the trip to St. Ignace, a small town located on the banks of...

Awesome Michigan lip dubs: Four reasons to visit the 'Great Lakes State'

Aug 2nd, 2011 at 4:00PM: Sure, we've been occasionally lured-in to visit a new destination due to a cheeky tourism campaign, or two -- guilty as charged. There's nothing as reassuring, though, as seeing the citizens of a city band together to proclaim to the world, 'hey world, my city is great!' And we can't help but notice the chutzpah overflowing in the state of Michigan. Over the last year Michigan's citizens,...

Inside Dearborn's Henry Ford Museum

Inside Dearborn's Henry Ford Museum Jun 11th, 2011 at 1:00PM: Outside downtown Detroit, in Dearborn, there's a museum filled with airplanes and cars and farm implements and the most outlandish house ever conceived. Somehow, the bric a brac works, brought together as The Henry Ford Museum, an institution less focused on a particular moment or a particular discipline that the very idea of American innovation, financed by the inventor's healthy...

The Detroit Dining Scene: An Interview with Chef Steven Grostick

The Detroit Dining Scene: An Interview with Chef Steven Grostick Jun 8th, 2011 at 9:00AM: Chef Steven Grostick has never worked in a kitchen outside of Michigan. It's a remarkable accomplishment in an industry focused on apprenticeships in France, Italy, Japan, on jumping from stove to stove in New York City, on doing a turn at a resort in Arizona. Staying in-state has let him amass a network of purveyors, and he's calling in favors from as many as he can at his year-old restaurant...

Photo of the day: Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Lake Linden

Photo of the day: Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Lake Linden Mar 30th, 2011 at 5:00PM: Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a favorite place of mine. Desolate and beautiful, the U.P. is an ideal getaway destination. The coastline of Michigan's U.P. has a certain kind of shine--they kind that makes me want to build a cabin and never leave... except during the winters. Featured above are 3 kayaking friends using a sail rig on their kayak. Launching off from a clean sandy beach, this...
