Very interesting - loved it. I've lived in Northern Michigan all my life. With the economy the way it is, my vacations are spent close to home.

An excellent and well-rounded episode on our little hidden gem of a village. It's the best kept secret in the thumb. Pt. Sanilac has been the site of my second home since I was five. Sadly though, when I called my parents, who live in Pt. Sanilac, to tell them to turn on the show we were disappointed to learn that the local PBS station was not broadcasting the episode.From what I can tell, Comcast, the largest provider in the area, ran something different.

As your show depicted, Pt. Sanilac has so much to offer.In fact, we love it so much my husband and I have since built our retirement home there and this past spring have started a small farm, Barkshanty Hops, LLC, cultivating and growing organic hops to sell commercially to local micro-breweries and home brewers.
Hopefully, the alternate show times listed for future dates will be picked up by the local broadcast provider, and the community of Pt. Sanilac can bask in the glow you've perfectly portrayed of our town. Thank you.

We would like to take our motorhome and camp at the port cities shown on the program. We thought the program was excellent. The program we saw was the port cities and parks of Sanilac County.

JR & Nacy Lomerson, Robert & Dorothy Martin - Attica, MI

Unfortunately, I was not able to view this past weeks show, but I wanted to touch base with you to let you know,  wife and I and another couple had the chance to view fall color in UP last weekend.  We visited Fayette(awesome), Manistique, Indian Lake, Palms Book Park, Seney Wildlife Refuge (what a treat, can't wait till next Summer to go back), Tahquamenon, and the Soo locks, had a great time and color was magnificent! Then returned home via the East side of MI down 23. Thanks for all the great ideas and destinations.  Keep up the good work.

It was a wonderful show. I was amazed by the scenic beauty. You are doing a great service to Michigan by letting people like me know how beautiful and bountiful Michigan is. Keep it up, thanks.

I am constantly reminded of the beauty and splendor we have so available in our great state. Thank you for bringing this beauty to the television and
making others aware of the wonders the State of Michigan contains. I visited the historic town of Fayette this past summer, your show just makes me want to go back, and part of me wishes I never had to leave at all.

Thomas Bowen - Vicksburg, MI

Being from southwest Michigan, I've never gotten up to the northeast part of our state. We tend to go up along Lake Michigan. Having done the "west side" thing my whole life, this episode showed me how many new home-state adventures await me now that I'm retired. Thanks for the eye opener!

Dennis Luke - Allendale, MI

I thought it was very informative. The fall canoe trip down the river looked very enjoyable and relaxing. Possibly taking a trip in the river boat also.
Ps. Keep up the good work

Lived in MI my whole life and have never seen such beautiful landscape before - going to add this trip to our plans for next fall. Love your show!!
