Upcoming Trip to Michigan

It is finally summer here in the Midwest and time to do some relaxing and also some much needed travelling. There’s nothing better than a nice summer roadtrip on the open road in beautiful weather. Luckily, I have a nice little trip coming up. Later this week, I will be going on a 3 anda half day vacation to Michigan with some friends to play some golf. I am excited to see a part of Michigan that I have never really experienced before, Grand Rapids.

Grand Rapids is the second biggest city in the state behind Detroit, and seems like a nice place to live. I have been there once before but it was for a work trip which ended up being very quick. I do remember the local brewery scene being hailed as being the place to hang out at, and I recall having a few good meals at restaurants (I am since forgetting the name of the places). What I didn’t realize is that there are so many nice golf courses. I just looked up the roster of golf courses we are scheduled to play, and they all look like really quality and renowned courses. Hopefully my game is on point to make it a worthwhile experience to play such nice courses!

Besides Grand Rapids, I have always wanted to spend time visiting Traverse City a little up north in the state. Located on the shores of upper Lake Michigan, Traverse City is well known in being a favorite summertime destination due to its cool weather, and fun food and drink scene. One of these days I will have to plan a relaxing vacation to go up there with a group of friends or my girlfriend, to get away from the never ending bustle of the big city. For noe, West Central Michigan awaits.
