June 2020 - In spite of the continued lockdown some businesses can welcome people, especially those involved in agriculture. Be sure to check websites for the latest updates and special events.

Promoting Michigan Getaways - Entertainment & Storytelling.


Anderson & Girls Farm and the Lewis Farm Zoo both have great petting zoos and both are in the book "The Unofficial Guide To Michigan Zoos" by Tim Payne.

The Lavender Labyrinth is located at Cherry Point Farm, they may not have much lavender this year but the cherry struedel is awesome.

 If you are just looking for a nature getaway the Ledges at Grand Ledge are easy to access.

More difficult but spectacular is the fossil quarry at the Rockport Recreation Area.

More difficult still is the Nelson Canyon Waterfall in Gogebic County. It is detailed beautifully in Michigan Waterfalls Book 4 by Phil Stagg. I tell about my adventures there with Bob the Turtle in a podcast at www.mibackroads.com .
