This app takes us away from the urban sprawl and blandness of big box stores and chain restaurants into what makes the state so exceptional. It can be a ma and pa restaurant where the cherry pie is from fruit grown just down the road or a cutting edge restaurant where the chef visits the local cheesery to select what's best to serve for dinner that night. It's kayaking along a fast moving river, skiing down a Michigan mountain, spending the night in a charming bed and breakfast that dates back two centuries. It's taking a boat down the river that Hiawatha once paddled, or peering through glass bottom boats at shipwrecks from the 19th century. It's the best of the coastal and heartland hamlets and big cities.

This jam packed app takes you on 12 Road Trips covering 128 destinations each loaded with 5 to 10 (and sometimes more) recommendations. Jump in anywhere on the road to find the best restaurants, lodging, islands, galleries, vistas, serious food stops, trendy shopping, family fun, microbrews, wineries and more.
