I loved the show! I found it by accident while I was working in my kitchen and called my husband in to watch it with me. We usually travel to the west side of the state but now we plan to visit some of the places you showed, thank you.

The show introduced us to an area (Sanilac County) that we have not really spent any time at and would now like to do so.

I want to tell you how much we enjoy your show. My husband and I saw the Sanilac County show and thought we would like to visit the Evergreen Park but of course I didnt write down the name of the park. When we sat down to make reservations and couldn't because we didnt remember the name I just got on Great Getaways web-site and there it was, the show we saw! Thanks to you our first summer camping trip will be there, the Evergreen Park. Thanks for all the enjoyment you give my husband and myself. Keep up the good work.

Very interesting.  Will now plan some extra days in this area next year on my way to Calumet. Thanks for showing me more than just somewhere to sleep in the Manistique area on my US2 journey.

Christina Byrne - Flushing, MI

I was intrigued.  I don't get out any more but my nephew and his kids love bike riding.  I want to let him know about the trails around Manistique that were on today's show.  Looks wonderful.  I love your programs and even better when they are actually in Michigan.  Although, if I was 30 years younger I might enjoy exploring Bruce County.

Patti Garvin - Manistique, MI

Loved it! Was so surprised to see myself & my 2 daughters walking on beach near the Manistique light house! Can't wait to share the video with them, thanks a million, love all your shows!

 I enjoy your weekly show, but wish I could rewatch or search for old episodes, is it on you tube?

- You can find many Great Getaways clips on YouTube and we continue to upload clips from new and old shows and will have many full episodes up soon.

What a great show. We spend many summer vacations at Indian Lake State Park when our kids were growing up. Now we have the urge to head that way again. Did not realize how much there is to do and see in that area. Thanks for bringing back old memories.

I have been in that area, but I love the way you always show the inner lands of the areas you portray. I always get new ideas for exploring.  Thank you for the vacations.

After seeing parts, I had flashbacks to taking a trip with my family 30 years ago to that area.  I'm going to go this year with my daughter.

Beatrice Terry - Mason, MI

Somewhere in the lower part of the UP, you had a show on a lake that never freezes in the winter time, crystal clear, and accessed by a pontoon pulled by a wheel and a rope.  Lots of fish!  Where is this located, town, how do I locate it?  We're planning a trip in the UP, in July, and would like to show this to our grandson.  Thank you for  your assistance.

- Hi Beatrice, The lake you described is called Kitch-iti-kipi or The Big Spring at Palms Book State Park outside of Manistique, Michigan. You can find information on our "Top of the Lake Circle Tour" Travel Planner.
