Humans aren't meant to spend all their time in office blocks, surrounded by concrete. A trip to places like Straits State Park isn't just excellent fun, it's a necessity.
It's in St Ignace. If you're not familiar with the name, it's 220 miles (354 kilometers) away from the state capital of Lansing.
Are you only here for a short amount of time? Reserve a room at one of the 10 hotels that can be found within a short drive of Straits State Park. The Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront, The Breakers Resort - Lakeside and the Quality Inn Saint Ignace are three that are recommended, and they're only 2 miles (3 kilometers), 2 miles (3 kilometers) and 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away, respectively.
If you're contemplating cheap solutions, you'll find a few here. These include the Voyager Inn and the Northern Lakes Inn, which are 0.7 miles (1.1 kilometer) and 0.9 miles (1.4 kilometers) away, respectively.
When it's dinnertime, head to Fred's Pub (200 Ferry Lane, Saint Ignace) for some of the best local food. It's only 0.2 miles (0.3 kilometers) from Straits State Park.
