Great Summer Road Trip To Michigan
These days taking a long road trip is pretty much out of the question. But a short road trip from Minnesota to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and West Coast is perfect. Learn more in Late-Summer-Michigan-Road-Trip-Bob Davis Podcast 947.
You’ve Never Been?
First of all when I told friends I was headed to the Midwest’s ‘West Coast’ people said, “You’ve never been?”
The West Coast
However not on up Michigan’s West Coast.
The Upper Peninsula
I’d certainly been to the Upper Peninsula. But I haven’t spent much time there.
I’ll just say it. Wow.
I Want To Go Back…In The Winter!
More importantly, I think it is one of the best places to visit in the summer. So much so, I want to go back in the winter!
Not Big On Travelog Podcasts
Above all I am not one for travelog podcasts. Every bend in the highway is chronicled. Routes and places to stay talked about and so on.

But It’s The History That Gets Me
The SS Badger Is The Cherry On Top
The Old Industrial Midwest
I am product of the old industrial Midwest.
Factories, Farms, Railroads, Mines and Lakes
My home is a heartland of factories and mines. I can’t forget the farms and train yards.
Won’t Forget Working Class History
Still An Industrial Powerhouse
Travel Is All About Learning
To sum up what gets me about this kind of travel is the history.
Plenty of that in this podcast.
