#MittenTrip: Roadtripping Across Michigan

#MittenTrip: Roadtripping Across Michigan

Kicking off June 5th (the day before our 4th birthday), The Awesome Mitten is embarking on a three month campaign to visit 12 Michigan cities:

Our goal with each visit on these Michigan road trips is to provide you with a “weekend in a box,” a full guide to a weekend in that town. We’ll give you the scoop on the best places to stay, eat, drink, hike, shop, and more. Expect lots of great photos, videos, and stories from our adventures!

The dates for our travels are listed above. We’ll be publishing content from that city the following week, so check back often, or subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss a city!

Do you have a favorite place we can’t miss in one of these cities? Let us know in the comments!

Our travels are made possible by these awesome partners:

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
