I'll be back in February!

In February I plan on having more posts on my TRAVEL WORLD site. There are still lots of countries to learn about; Russia, Switzerland, Thailand, and South Africa to name a few.

Thank You!

Northern Michigan (A Winter Wonderland)

Northern Michigan encompasses a broad range of landmass. Not to be missed is the unique Upper Peninsula which is a world of its own. One of the grandest Great Lakes (Lake Superior) is located in the Upper Peninsula. On the Lower Peninsula of Michigan in the Northwest corner of the state lies a popular city known as Traverse City.

Traverse City like much of America this winter is experiencing heavy snowfall and lots of cold weather but that doesn't stop the locals and tourists from enjoying all the attractions the area has to offer. Below is a list of activities to enjoy and melt away the winter blues.
