Just 150 miles north of the Detroit area, Mount Pleasant is home of one of the largest casinos in the state, art museums, Central Michigan University and the Chippewa River. It offers the excitement of a casino to the peace and quiet of nature all just a tank of gas away.
Traverse City quite simply has it all, a beautiful location, a modern thriving city and activities ranging from walking along the Sleeping Bear Dunes, tasting some of the best wines the country has to offer or enjoying a swim in the bay.
