For the past few summers I’ve spent my vacations getting to know my home state better. Whether exploring the U.P.’s Tahquamenon Falls, visiting the “most beautiful place in America,” Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, or stopping in for a beer at one of Michigan’s many craft breweries, I’ve discovered that there’s a lot to do and see in Michigan. If you’re thinking of spending your vacation close to home, the library has all sorts of books to help you plan your Great Lakes State vacation.
