Whichever direction you decide on, TripAdvisor.com is great for the "Things to do" section of their website. Just type in what city you are going to and plenty of useful info comes up. We have found museums and attractions that usually don't even advertise and the "reviews" on each place help a lot.
Good Luck on making your final decision!

I can give you all the great spots when we see you at Goshen.

Michigan, by far. Beautiful west coast of Lake Michigan shoreline. The views will rival anywhere. Nice coastal towns with lots of history. If you are a beer drinker, this state has some of the best craft beers in the world. Wineries if you like wine. We have driven all over the country and have decided to just vacation here in the summer because there is so much to see and do. And this praise is coming from a Buckeye (born in Girard, Ohio)

This post saddens me. We WERE going to go visit friends in Traverse City before Goshen, but they had to cancel. I'd love to go see them, see the area again, and AVOID this heat!!! Here's what you get up there:

We live in the broke state of IL and travel to both MI and WI, with MI winning most of the time as to which state to travel to. Why?

One: Michigan has more sandy beaches and a lot of campgrounds with full hook-ups than WI.
Two: Great little towns with a lot of festivals with shopping and a lot of winery's in the area along the lake front. Not so much in WI. Most campgrounds in WI do not offer full-hooks-ups and some do not even have 50 AMP sites.

Door County WI is the exception with some campgrounds having full-hook ups and 50 amp sites. But the beach areas are for the most part are rocky or the lake seems colder than MI is. Just My $0.02

In fact we have been to MI twice so far and will be going to Traverse City in August for one more trip.

Try Poncho's Pond in Ludington MI. great private RV park with full-hook-ups and level pull-thru sites. We where just there with the grandkids two weeks ago.

Jim34RL,
Wow, that Poncho's Pond looks nice. Have not been to Luddington yet. Is there a lot to do?

Poncho is a great guy. Yes it's his real name. That park is one of our favorites. He also owns a Motorhome and understands the business.

Yes, there is. Several great beaches and a state park to visit. We also toured Amber Elk Ranch, grand kids feed the Bulls and cows ( Elk). Drove down to Silver Lake and did Mac Dunes rides on the sand dunes to name a few things to do.

Thank you all for your suggsstions. Lake Michigan is an absolute delight. The Ludington area and Vacation Station RV park were outstanding.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. We just moved our base to Traverse City and are enjoying it so much. I grew up on Lake Michigan and never get tired of it.
