The Run Down

Pack the car because you're going on a day trip to Southwest Michigan. It's close to a 2-hour drive, and if you're going during the right time of year, you'll start at a pick-your-own peach/grape/apple orchard on a hillside farm. Afterward, you'll head to a park covering nearly 2,000 acres and 6 miles of sandy trails that go up and over steep sand dunes. The day ends at small downtown in one of the many communities dotting Lake Michigan's coastline.
