We decided to visit lower and upper Michigan peninsula after visiting family in Detroit for a wedding, though it was cold and November 2018, we still had an amazing time without the crowd. The road was quite pleasant and quiet. We stop to do the hike at Empire Walking Trail, rating as one of the best hiking trail in the area. The trail starts wooded and then eventually you get to the top and has a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. I never knew this part of the world would like such beautiful turquoise water where I have only seen in the Caribbean.
