Glacier National Park, Montana to Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Chicago to Mackinac Island, Michigan
Mackinac Island feels stuck in the 19th century, but in a good way. From Chi-town, stick to Michigan’s Gold Coast, where you’ll find rolling hills, farm stands, sand dunes and vineyards. After crossing into Michigan, stop for lunch at Charlie's Piggin N' Grinnin' (the name alone) in Benton Harbor. Sated, keep chugging toward Holland, best known for its tulips. (This year’s Tulip Time Festival is May 6-14.) Visit Windmill Island Gardens, the Big Red Lighthouse and New Holland Brewing, then rest at Lake Ranch Resort. From here, Traverse City and its food scene beckons. Since the area’s known for tart cherries, stock up at Cherry Republic. Elsewhere, consider Cousin Jenny's Cornish Pasties and the food trucks at Little Fleet. Next, pull off an hour north in picturesque Charlevoix before overnighting in Mackinaw City, the gateway to Mackinac Island via a 20-minute ferry ride. You’ll have to leave your car at the ferry lot since Mackinac Island is car-free, but between bikes, electric scooters and horse-drawn carriages, you’ll hardly miss it.
