Super great!, I lived in Tawas for almost twenty years when I was a kid. Great city, and state, to raise a family in.

Wonderful. I have lived in Michigan all my life and have never been up north. Being a black woman, I was always told as a little girl that that area was not for us. I can't believe that. Michigan is a state where great getaways can be done all year round. My husband and I are in the process of planning a short getaway and would like some information on cabins. Thank you for your shows and its hosts.

I want to say thank you for this program. It was the first one that I saw, but will not be the last one now. I want to take my family up to Tawas State Park now, and will as soon as I can get some time off of work. Keep up the great work.

This week's show, Biking in Tawas, was very interesting. We went with friends to Tawas with our bikes several years ago and had a great time. We biked to the state park and enjoyed the shoreline. From your show we learned a lot about the improvements to the bike trail and the community. Thank you for your service.

It was great and we learned alot about the area especially the birding so if you have info on the birding and biking trails you can send along that would be wonderful. We enjoyed this on so much that we decided to record the series and spend or time more in Michigan.

I have visited this area many times and have a special affection for the Tawas Point Lighthouse.  I have also gotten back into bicycling this summer and would like to plan a vacation for next year that would include staying at the lighthouse and bicycling around the area.  Thanks for giving me something exciting to look forward to!

Fantastic.  Beautiful.  Well narrated.  Have previously visited Tobermorey (not sure of it's spelling) in the Bruce Peninsula and camped other spots a number of years ago.  I look forward to this waterfall trip.

Just watched the show on Houghton Lake on our local PBS station.  Brought back memories of my Aunt & Uncle's place on Higgins Lake.  Your show is well done, photography is great, conveys a lot of info, moves at a good pace, and is fun to watch.  Thanks

I love the Houghton Lake area!  My family has been going up there for nearly 100 years.  My Grandfather used to take a train from Toledo, Ohio, and his father and he would take a horse and buggy from Cadillac to Houghton Lake.

The show was wonderful! We are hoping to get away for a weekend this fall, and your show has made us consider the Tawas area.  The fall scenes were breathtaking.  You always do shuch a good job.  Thank you, Barb

Would like more info on the River Queen Boat which goes down the AuSable River on a 2-2 1/2 hr tour.  Please send dates and times this boat goes.

- Hi Philip,
You should be able to find all the information you need on the AuSable River Queen at their website.

I thought it was so descriptive and showed the beauty in Oscoda that it drove me to request more information so I can take a trip and visit there.

Kathleen Russ - Belleville, MI

I loved it. I saw so many new things. I am a life time resident of THE GREAT STATE OF MICHIGAN. My family and I will be going there (Tawas, MI) real soon, as soon as I receive my guide. Thanks for all your programming. Keep up the great work.

Harley Cassel - Pleasant Ridge, MI

Super show. I wish I had seen your show on an earlier date because I missed a lot of things that I would have enjoyed stopping and seeing when I drove down Route 23 from Cheboygan to Standish just a couple of days ago. I'll be going back next spring and will enjoy the travel info you provided.
Never had been to Cheyboygan or any of the area south on Route 23. It was a super drive.

Vincent  DeLuca - Northville, MI

The boat ride on the Ausable River looks wonderful.  I think it would be great to go on in the fall because of the leaves turning colors.

This show is amazing.  The Lake Huron in Autumn episode I really enjoyed in particular.  I have visited the Oscoda area a few times, but there is so much more I have to explore there! I can't say enough good things about the Great Getaways program to friends and family.  I love Michigan!
