The state of Michigan, with its Great Lakes and astounding nature, is divided into two peninsulas covering 100,000sq mi (258,999sq km) of American country. Within this state, there are many different natural, cultural and historical landmarks to discover. From sailing on an old cargo schooner to exploring Japanese tea rooms and taking in the local live music scene, we have chosen some of our favorite spots to visit in the Wolverine State.
In Ada, Michigan, goat hikes on a Sunday cannot be missed. Through woods, marsh and prairie, small groups get the opportunity to roam with a herd of goats. The sustainable farm Dreamgoats raises Nubian goats within their community in a way that enriches the land they live off of. The farm has proposed that while the dairy industry is suffering, we should take a step back to appreciate where milk comes from and analyze our connection to what nourishes us. Kids are entranced by this trek with foraging goats. It’s a unique experience to say the least.
