Last week, the wife, kid and I piled in the car and went to visit my mom in northern lower Michigan (not the U.P.). Lucky for me, we stumbled onto a couple of wooden boat museums in the area - the Great Lakes Boat Museum and the Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station Maritime Museum. Plus all the nautical related stuff around Mackinac Island. Having never been to Michigan, I was pleasantly surprised.
