The weather is starting to warm up allow us to actually make plans for the weekends where we can spend time outdoors and actually enjoy it! Here are some of the top ranked road trips in Michigan you can take this weekend!

Love waterfalls?

This trip through the UP will have your jaw dropping at these gorgeous scenes created by Mother Nature herself. Some hiking may be involved, but I promise the view will be worth it! Start at Tahquamenon and make your way around the Upper Peninsula to Sable Falls, Miners Falls, Munising Falls, Bond Falls, Manido Falls, Manabezho Falls, Gabbro Falls, and Potawatomi Falls. The drive will also have you “Oooh-ing” and “Ahhhh-ing” as you pass through quaint towns like Grand Marais, located along Lake Superior’s coastline.

Needing some Beach Time?

The closest Great Lake happens to be Lake Huron, some of the best beaches can be found in Lexington. The town is filled with great local restaurants and shops that are unique to the area. Take a stroll down to the lakeshore and enjoy one of the 3 beautiful beaches Lexington has to offer;  Lake Street Beach, the public beach, and if you want to catch a game of beach volleyball head over to Simon Street and dig deep!

Looking for a more woodsy experience? Lexington Park is located just north of town, boasting 27 acres filled with fun activities such as tennis courts, picnic areas, scenic walkways, playground equipment, a pavilion, horseshoes, restrooms and showers as well as a beach for swimming.
