Escape the Heat Wave! Visit Michigan or North Dakota!

With record setting heat engulfing much of the country, I thought today we'd take a look at places in the USA that would be a welcomed vacation from the oppressive heat.

Sit back, grab a cold glass of lemonade and grab a pen and paper so you can take some notes on some outstanding vacation spot that are sure to make you forget about the oven you just escaped from.

  • How about a canoe raft or kayak down down the cool waters of a Michigan river? tells us "Of the 120 major rivers in Michigan, The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has designated 16 as “Natural Rivers External Link to help preserve, protect and enhance the finest systems for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations. Among them are the Two Hearted River and the Fox River, both located in the Upper Peninsula. In the Lower Peninsula the Au Sable River provides excellent canoeing and kayaking, as well as wildlife viewing, not far from Interstate 75."

North Dakota  
  • From adventures to zoos, North Dakota has much to offer for vacation fun. North Dakota has also been named the "Friendliest State in the US" bu Cambridge University as well as the most affordable state in which to vacation by the AAA.
  • Here's a short list of some fun things to consider when visiting North Dakota from

     Does your family like to golf? We've got 124 courses and you can play all weekend for less than a single-round in other states.  Check out the Jack Hoeven Wee Links course where kids can play for just $1.
    Does your family like history? We've got dinosaurs, forts, earthlodges, museums and legends like Theodore Roosevelt, Lewis and Clark, Sakakawea, Sitting Bull and Gen. Custer.
    Is your family adventurous? North Dakota has mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fossil digs, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, waterparks, skiing and snowmobile trails.
    Does your family like nightlife? You'll enjoy concerts, shopping, dining, semi-pro sports and festivals. And nothing beats camping under millions of stars.
    Does your family love animals? There are more wildlife refuges here than any other state, four zoos, a National Buffalo Museum with live herd, including three albino buffalo ... and much, much more. 
Michigan and North Dakota are great vacation destinations for anybody, with tons of family and outdoors recreation as well. When you get there be sure to mention The Lower 48 (Plus 2)!
