    Day 2

    Start the day with a tour of
    hallowed Lambeau Field and
    the Packers Hall of Fame before
    heading north to the UP –
    Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. History
    and scenery abound, along with
    the opportunity to meet some of the
    hardy people who call the UP home.
    In fact, the residents of the region
    are called “yoopers” (u-pers) and
    you’ll enjoy honorary status for the
    next few days. A luncheon of local
    favorites, pasties, is served high
    atop the ski run at Iron Mountain.
    Then there’s a brief stop at scenic
    Bond Falls before making the final
    push into Houghton. Country Inn &
    Suites – 2 nights (B,L)

    Day 3

    Unknown to most people
    outside the region, the Keweenaw
    Peninsula was where most of the
    country’s copper once came out
    of the ground. The scenery is memorable,
    lighthouses abound, the people and their
    stories fascinating – their unique history is
    all around you. Here people braved extreme
    weather and hazardous conditions to bring
    copper out of the ground. Magnificent
    churches, many over a century old, dot
    the landscape, giving the miners and their
    families a sense of community. Today, you
    meet Father Basil, one of the monks who
    runs the Jampot Bakery. We’ll stop in for
    treats and enjoy the waterfall next door. The
    entire day is a history lesson, told by the
    people who live here. Awesome. (B,L,D)

    Day 4

    Time to travel. Our motorcoach leaves
    the Keweenaw and heads east to Marquette
    along the shores of Lake Superior. On
    the way meet Sister Maria at the Shrine
    of Bishop Baraga. This wonderful lady
    is working to start a new order in a most
    remote destination. We must pause at “Da
    Yoopers Tourist Trap,” because after all, we
    are tourists. It’s an “attraction” unlike any
    other. Your accommodations are the best
    in town, right down by the lake, affording
    every traveler a great view of the water
    (and the sunrise). Hampton Inn – 2 nights
    (B,L,D)

  • Day 5

    Just an hour from Marquette is the small
    lakeside village of Munising. We’ve included
    a most interesting lake cruise to see
    shipwrecks through the glass bottom of the
    boat! A fascinating adventure. Tonight, dine
    in the UP’s finest steak house. (B,D)

    Day 6

    Push east this afternoon, through to St.
    Ignace where you’ll board the ferry for the
    20-minute ride to Mackinac Island. Prepare
    to fall in love at first sight with its historic
    buildings, quaint shops and “no motor
    vehicles allowed” policy. It’s a short horsedrawn
    carriage ride to the top of the hill and
    Mackinac’s iconic landmark – the Grand
    Hotel. Built in 1887, the Grand is prepared
    to satisfy your every desire this evening
    starting with a formal dinner and ending
    with live music and dancing. Best of all, you
    get to do it all over again tomorrow! Grand
    Hotel – 2 nights (B,L,D)

    Day 7

    Discover Mackinac Island’s natural beauty on a
    morning horse-drawn wagon tour. Free time is allowed
    midday to explore the lakeside village. Don’t forget to buy some fudge – an
    island staple – for the trip home. Before
    long you’ll be ready for a little pick-me-up,
    so return to the Grand to explore and relax.
    The filming location of Somewhere in Time,
    don’t miss the historical exhibits (yes, there
    IS a framed portrait of Jane Seymour), art
    gallery, horse stables, Cupola Bar and have
    a sit on the front porch which, at 660 feet
    long, is the biggest in the world! (FB,D)

    Day 8

    Take the ferry back to the mainland and
    travel along the scenic east shore of Lake
    Michigan on the LP (Lower Peninsula) with
    lunch served in the quaint community of
    Petoskey. In nearby Acme, you’ll discover
    an incredible collection of mechanical
    instruments and antique phonographs at
    The Music House. The centerpiece of
    the museum, a huge Belgian pipe
    organ, is simply amazing, and
    all instruments are in perfect
    working order as you’ll see… and hear! The short drive to Traverse City is
    where your return flight awaits. (FB,L)
