Day 2 – Escanaba to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario 

Discover the Upper Peninsula as we skirt along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan & Lake Superior, and visit the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi River, Tahquamenon Falls with its copper tint produced by natural minerals in the Tahquamenon River.

Day 3 – Sault Ste. Marie to Agawa Canyon via Train 

We’ll fuel up with breakfast at the hotel, preparing us for a full day scenic adventure. Behold splendid fall foliage as we rail through rugged wilderness and deep valleys and gorges, featuring rushing rivers and peaceful lakes on the classic Agawa Canyon Tour Train. Crossing towering trestles, as our train winds its way through this one-of-a-kind terrain, a GPS triggered commentary weaves the story of this stunning region. Lunch is on your own aboard the train. After descending 500 feet in the last 10 miles, we’ll reach the incredible floor of the Agawa Canyon, where we’ll stop in Agawa Canyon Park for some leisure time to hike the trails or relax amidst the incredible landscapes. Boarding the train for our journey back to Sault Ste. Marie, we can’t help but keep looking out the large windows! During dinner we’ll enjoy talking about our spectacular day with our new travel friends! 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

 

Day 4 – Sault Ste. Marie to Mackinaw City, MI 

Cross the Mighty Mac five-mile bridge that links the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan, then ferry over to Historic Mackinac Island. A horse and buggy carriage awaits to carry us around to all the sights and a charming tour of the island. Mackinac Island has seemingly remained untouched–as it was when the first European settlers came there about three centuries ago. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the island; transportation is limited to horse, carriage, bike, or foot! Join us for a spectacular luncheon buffet at the famous Grand Hotel. The remainder of the afternoon will be at your leisure to enjoy the surrounding activities, shops, and scenery. Some may want to rent a bicycle. Then we ferry back to Mackinaw City where we’ll settle into our hotel, perfectly situated on the shores of Lake Huron. This evening you may wish to stroll the beach or take in the water’s sounds from the private balcony of your lakefront room!

We’ll stop in Traverse City for lunch and shopping on tour own. More fall foliage awaits as we view rural & agricultural Joyfield Township during our Fantail Farm’s wagon ride pulled by draft horses! Next we continue on to Ludington, a charming port town, where we’ll check into our hotel. We invite you, our special guests, to dinner at a delightful restaurant.
