VesperLynd,If you decide on the UP of Michigan, here are some things I can suggest to do. I went to college in "Da U.P., eh". The temperatures in July will be in the 60s or 70s. If you go in late July or August you will probably contend with black flies. Mackinac Islandhttp://www.mackinac.com/Quite touristy, so maybe not your cup of tea. Not too insanely crowded during midweek in the summer. You can bike the island or take a horse drawn carriage. You also must try Murdick's Fudge on the island. If staying overnight in the area, stay in the St. Ignace side (a little cheaper).Shipwreck Museum - Whitefish Pointhttp://www.shipwreckmuseum.com/Site of a great many shipwrecks on Lake Superior. They also have a large display on the Edmund Fitzgerald. Pictured Rocks Boat Tour - Munising http://www.exploringthenorth.com/pictrocks/pr.htmlSee the effects of Lake Superior battering a rocky coast fot thousands of years. There is also a hiking trail from one end to the other.Pocupine Mountains - Ontonagonhttp://www.exploringthenorth.com/porkiesum/intro.htmlHey, its not the Rockies but still very scenic! You can hike or drive your way around the park.Keweenaw Peninsulahttp://www.keweenaw.org/I spent three of the best years of my life in and around this northernmost part of Michigan. Driving up to Copper Harbor in the fall is a trip through an endless canopy of vibrant colors. My favorite spots are too numerous to mention.You might also check out a house or cottage rental for a week. There are plenty of rental properties right on Lake Superior.Waymee
