Pure Michigan

As adventure of spending  the next 20 years inside educational institutions looms before my daughter, I’ve been spending more time thinking about ways to instill a passion and love of learning. As a preschooler it’s easy with fun songs and hands on crafts. But what happens when children hit the age where they’re too cool for school? When preparing for the school day is met with grumbles of protest and I have to start bag checking for homework? For some reason there is an idea that has always stuck with me – travel. To begin with, an exploration of our great state: One State, One Family, One Epic Trip.  

One of the things I love about Michigan is it’s great history. Some of the most influential periods in Michigan history was the French and Indian War and the introduction of the Automobile to name a few. A tour of our great state shows the many Forts,  Museums and Monuments that are a reflection of it’s history.

What better time to explore than during winter break? No school, discounted prices on everything and plenty of excuse to stop for pasties and hot cocoa. But thanks to getting T-Boned on icy roads last week my car is not in any shape for a road trip. Which is OKAY, since a road trip is the perfect excuse to rent a car for the week. Who wouldn’t want an excuse to drive around a new vehicle for the week? Bonus, better gas milage, all the latest technology and with Enterprise “Plus Your Points” promotion we can earn double points toward free rentals in the future.
