That day finally arrived this past weekend for me, and suddenly day-tripping season began. The greatest part is that the opportunity to partake in mini excursions can last well into the fall in our region. So, let’s get back on the road and let the journeys begin.
For our first jaunt of the season, we headed north toward the beautiful Irish Hills of southeast Michigan.
Just a little over an hour’s drive transports you to a region that boasts a multitude of lakes, rolling hills, and unique eateries and recreation sites.
Or simply roll down your car window and follow the smell of barbeque wafting through the air.
Housed in a historic 1870s schoolhouse, visitors can sample award winning wines, like Raceway Red, year round at the winery’s knotty pine bar.
There are so many more places to explore in the Irish Hills, but we’ll save them for the next time. That’s the beauty of day-trips…you can take them often.
Have a great week!
