Overview

With Explorer’s Guides, expert authors and helpful icons make it easy to locate places of extra value, family-friendly activities, and excellent restaurants and lodgings. Regional and city maps help you get around and What’s Where provides a quick reference on everything from tourist attractions to off-the-beaten-track sites.
From the best of Detroit to the best remote angling spots and everyplace in between, this guide delves into the rich variety of Michigan with a focus on outdoor activities, like hiking and paddling, and attractions on and off the beaten track. Discover the best spots for fly-fishing and where to fill up your gas tank (essential info because there are vast stretches in the U.P. where you won’t find any stations) and where to find the best pasties around. (What’s a pasty? Read the book!)
