I plan to fly to Traverse City, Michigan July 3rd and spend 3 days with my cousins. A reunion, my father was born and grew up there.
I plan to rent a car and, yes, I know I need to reserve it soon and book my airfare, too.
So far, I’m planning to drive to Petosky and spend 2 nights, July 6 and 7. See Charlevoix, too. A friend is flying in on July 6 and I will pick her up at the airport in Traverse City before I drive to Petosky.
Then we plan to stay on Mackinac Island, July 8 and 9. Fly home on Saturday, July 10.
I’m writing to ask for ideas on things to do. We like art or cultural museums and historical sights. Hikes or walks in state or national parks. Festivals. I know about the Cherry Festival in TC.
Am I missing anything? Should we fly home from TC airport or the airport near Mackinac Island? What about the rental car? Do you have to return it at same place you picked it up?
TIA for your help.
