Always a great episode of Great Getaways. I've enjoyed many of your features especially on Tawas and Oscoda, towns that we visit and stay in while
we're on vacation.

Very informative and great video production. My good friend had a family cottage there years ago and I know she'll love to see the DVD with me. We may plan to revisit Houghton Lake after about 35 years.

I really appreciate the effort to present hiking opportunities in Michigan.  I hope you will continue to canvas the state for opportunities in many other areas, both in the lower and upper peninsulas. Thanks!

Loved it!  I've been looking for hiking trails that were closer to home.  The wealth of information this program has given is priceless.  I can't wait to get out and explore these amazing places, and planning a trip to the Bruce Trails in the spring.  Thank you

My family and I love your show. As my daughter gets older, 3 this summer, we plan on taking a few day hikes this summer and this weeks program reminded me just what the Huron National Forest and the Oscoda area have to offer. Thanks for what you do.

I have been to the U.P. many times in the summer through the fall. However I have never seen it in the winter. Your program was wonderful. You have provided a great deal of useful information as well as beautiful footage. Now my family and I will have to visit the U.P. this winter.

Wow! What a great surprise. Great show. I'm very glad to see the show is still going. I still remember the first shows. I haven't seen just one show, you all sure have come a long way. Keep up the good work.

I thought that this showing was cool. The whole thing is usually entertainingly great. This week I liked the shots of the light house and the lake. I also loved the craftsmanship in the motel room.The wooden "Great Lakes" carvings were fantastic. Great work.

It was incredible.  We will be retiring in the Manistique Area on Lake Michigan and are always looking for ways to spend our hours and see new things.  We have not been to the UP during the winter in many years but do spend our summers there.

Great program!  Enjoyed the trail segments and especially was pleased to learn that I can still take a raft ride at Big Spring in the winter.

We just moved to this area and your program introduced us to many attractions literally in our NEW backyard.  We now live in a log home near the ghost town of Damon, in northern Ogemaw County.

Great! I teach geography at Oak Hill Academy, and I can use this DVD to supplement their study of the Great Lakes region!

Troy Hansbarger - Sunfield, MI
I really enjoy hearing about all the things to do around Houghton Lake besides fishing. The trails and places to snow shoe sound like a good family winter outdoor trip. I also like the winter kayak trip down the river. It was something I never thought about doing but I will be looking into it. Thanks for a great outdoor program.
