I came in late and only saw half of the program. I really enjoyed what I did see. My mom grew up in Carsonville 7 miles west of Port Sanilac. This brought back nice memories of the stories she would tell us about spending time there. I had my first perch dinner as a kid in Port Sanilac. Thank you for featuring Port Sanilac on Great Getaways. I really enjoy your program. Keep up the good work.

Brian Bell - Whitmore Lake, MI

Since we both are getting State of Michigan retirement (benefits), we should vacation in our own state. But, Ontario is/has been calling and your program reaffirmed that! If I can't see you live I always DVR it for sure, and have them saved for future viewing. I know the state well, but I do find new interesting stuff that you bring out! Do continue your great work, you’re  a PBS treasure!

What a great vacation idea for next summer with the family, also a great way to teach our kids about nature and the joys of it!

Great overview of the wonderful state parks in our Upper Peninsula. I lived here for 8 years and still only been to 5 of them. Time for me to gear up! Thank you again for a great program.

I am a 5th wheel owner and I love the U.P., so this was just up my camping world! I have been to several of the state parks in the Upper Peninsula, but wish to make a plan to travel there in the summer of 2016. Thanks for getting me started early.

My good friend Rodney is always telling I've got to visit the great parks in the Upper Peninsula, and after seeing the show I understand why. Loved the show and will watch every week now.

I've loved the Upper Peninsula since the first time I traveled through in 2008; I had spent most of a week this summer there. It's a beautiful and friendly region - the show was amazing. Now all I need is your help to find my way through the area in summers to come.

As watching the snow fall out my window, it was so nice to see beautiful summer gardens, and dream of what to plant in the spring.

Janice Landon  - Roscommon, MI

The show was very informational for potential visitors of the area. We moved here last spring from South Carolina. We were born and raised in this great state and thrilled to be back home, and blessed to call the Roscommon area our new home. We have bragging rights and this video shows why we need to share this area with friends and family!

I loved it. I grew up in Michigan, but had left for many years. I'm back and couldn't ask for a better way to acquaint myself with Michigan as an adult; than by viewing your program Great Getaways every week.

Was a great show as always! I look forward to your show no matter what channel or day – I watch it. It makes it even better because if I miss it one day, I can find another day or sometimes a week or month to watch it then. Thank you for a great show (not many around anymore).

Brian Bell - Whitmore Lake, MI

Such good timing! I saw the Soo episode this afternoon [Sat, Dec 12th] and took some notes, as a friend and I do an upper Michigan trip in the winter time! We've not gone further than St. Ignace, but I thought we should motor up to the Soo on our escape from our wives next February! Thanks, great video and as always and I learn more stops then just "The Antler's" in the Sault. Thanks for the video and information. I'm a regular viewer and enjoy your programs as I've told many to watch. Even learned a new eatery on this program in A2, which is only 13 miles South. Thanks again!

Craig Rehfus - Monroe, MI

Love all the shows, even the ones in Bruce County, and I can't wait to retire in 2016 in the Newberry Naubinway area! Look forward to the shows each week after vacationing 60 years in the U.P. for only two weeks at a time.

We thought it was very interesting and showed all the great things that Sault Ste. Marie has to offer. We were happy to see that you showed the vintage sleds during the I-500. Which happened to include our Polaris display. We enjoy your show very much!

Great! I missed a bit at the beginning, but as always I like to learn about the great trips that are within a short car ride away. I didn't catch where the Steam Railroading Institute was, so will look into it. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

(Manistique Winter) was a lot of fun to watch. Recently bought property near Manistique, and I hope to retire there. Your program informed me of things to do that I did not know.

Great show, I’ve been there numerous times in summer. It has been forever since I have been in there in the winter. After watching this episode, I will be going back soon for winter. Thanks, your shows are always interesting and good.

It was great. Our son is new to Houghton Lake, and it gave us some ideas of things to do when visiting him over there. I have yet to visit Tip Up Town, but think I will try.
Sun 12/27/2015 7:00 PM
Nancy Hands - Holt, MI

The first time we've watched and really enjoyed it. We have a place in Houghton Lake Heights. From watching this episode, we’ve discovered some new places to explore and dine at that we did not know about before. Thanks for the info!
