For over 100 years, southwestern Michigan has been a weekend getaway haven. With its ample wide beaches and charming lakeside towns, the area of Michigan known as Harbor Country continues to lure weekend visitors. Since the late 1970's, it has also been a popular destination for wine travel fans.

Southwestern Michigan is only about 90 minutes by car from greater Chicago. Interstate 94 takes a gentle north by northeast turn near the Indiana-Michigan state line, tracing the route of historic U.S. 12. Back in the 1930's, this area established its link to Michigan tourism. The first town greeting you upon entering Michigan is friendly and walkable New Buffalo.

With its harbor and compact business district, New Buffalo has long attracted boaters and those seeking a weekend escape. Of the eight communities comprising Harbor Country, New Buffalo feels most like a true town and a defined destination. Waterfront development has been carefully planned and monitored, ensuring the charm of this community for generations to come.

Less than a half mile down the road is the fascinating and ever evolving Round Barn Winery and Distillery. As the name implies, part of the facility is housed in an Amish built round barn, which is frequently used for weddings and special events. Not only can you sample wine at Round Barn, but distilled spirits and microbrews as well.

The other four wineries in this area are also quite near one another, making Harbor Country perfect for an afternoon of leisurely wine travel and tasting. Free Run Cellars, Domaine Berrien, Lemon Creek, and Hickory Creek all offer finely crafted wines that will appeal to even the most discriminating wine lover.

It's not often that you head out on a vacation planning to hit up the local farms, but in Michigan you might just want to. Michigan is one of the top apple-producing states in the U.S., and is known for being home to hundreds of farmers markets and cider mills. Just about any region in Michigan will have a farm or mill for you and the family to stop in for a bit. Enjoy fresh apple cider and tours of working farms to find out where these fruits come from before they hit your local grocery store. Of course, because there is much more to do than visit apple farms, your Michigan family vacation will be jam-packed with fun for everyone.

Michigan Coast Dotted with Over a Hundred Lighthouses

Michigan is the only state in the United States to be bordered by four great lakes. Because of this, its coast is dotted with over a hundred lighthouses, all with unique features and some with very interesting back stories. Though many of the lighthouses are still in use, others have been abandoned and others still are in the process of renovation. Though you may not be able to tour all of them, the few that do offer tours or that have museums are usually worth stopping to see. Even if you just stop for a few photos, lighthouses make fantastic pictures, especially when you can tell admirers that you took them yourself.

Pop into One of Michigan's Casinos

If your particular Michigan family vacation does not include children, or if you find yourself child-free with a few hours to spare, you might decide to pop into one of Michigan's casinos and try your hand at some cards, slots or a roll or two of the dice. Detroit has three casinos in the city itself, and there are several other throughout the state. If you're not much of a gambler, you can still enjoy the food and entertainment, much like Las Vegas but on a much smaller scale. Now that you have an idea of what Michigan has to offer, start planning your vacation accordingly, and don't forget to take lots of pictures!
