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!

In the depressed Michigan housing market, investors are now able to buy bank owned properties for les than 25 cents on the dollar. Once re-habbed, the houses are HUD-appraised. If such a home is purchased by a senior, 62 or older, who is approved for a reversed mortgage, this senior can now be a proud home owner without ever having to make house payments again. The investors are willing to provide a private mortgage or land contract on the home while the senior obtains the reverse mortgage.

Isn't this a great program?! A senior with job loss or income reduction can now own a home without making any mortgage payments*. This senior can now not only be a proud home owner, but also increase his or her financial independence and have cash available for a higher style of living.

*The senior still has an obligation to pay for home insurance and property taxes.

One of the loveliest places in America to enjoy the fine art of taking tea, is in a Michigan Tea Room. Located throughout the state, in the regional area of Detroit, Lansing, and the Upper Peninsula, a Tea Room in Michigan can be as varied as the clothes we wear to them!

Some Tea Rooms boast specialty items on their menu, conducive to their particular region. Michigan Cherry Scones are a wonderful find in Tea Rooms around the State! You will also find many interesting "tea related" gift items in many of these tiny, but traditional places. Look for a Tea Room that sells the same scone mix they use from their selected menu items. Ivita Products are a real find in Michigan as they hail from California and are rare in the Great Lakes State area, so look for their many tea related items including a variety of scone mixes, muffin mixes, lemon or lime curd and their imported English Clotted Crème.

Call your nearest Tea Room and ask about accommodating your group. Whether it is a Bridal Shower, a Baby Shower, or a Special Birthday, the Tea Room can create an experience your guests will never forget. Seating capacity is foremost to your guest list, so be sure the Tea Room size can accommodate your group.
