A few weeks ago, I flew up to Chicago to visit my little brother. He is doing an internship in St. Jo, Michigan, and he drove down to pick me up. We spent the morning in Chicago (it’s so cool!), and then headed up to Michigan. The lake was HUGE and gorgeous. I was having cognitive dissonance– I kept saying, “This has to be the ocean!!!” and Isaac kept saying, “No, Micah. It’s a lake. I promise.” It was so much fun and I definitely recommend Michigan to anyone looking for a beautiful, affordable trip to the coast.
