I'm in the mood for a road trip, so I'm going to try to hit all of the UP casinos in a long weekend. I tend to do these without a firm plan of where to stay - just find a motel when I get tired of driving. This will be my first trip west of Tahquamenon Falls.
Friday - leave Detroit mid-afternoon with a target of St. Ignace (Kewadin) for the night. I'll probably divert to Petoskey to meet up with some friends up at Boyne for the weekend.
Saturday - US-2 west, hitting Kewadin Manistique, Escanaba, & Island Resort Casino. Will probably try to make Iron Mountain for the night.
Sunday - Continuing west on US-2 to the Lac Vieux Desert Resort casino. Continue west to the Porcupine Mountains, the up to Ontanogan, Ojibwa Casino in Baraga, targetting Marquette (Ojibwa) or Munising (Kewadin Christmas Casino) for the night.'
Am I missing anything spectacular if I skip the Keweenaw peninsula?
Monday - Explore Pictured Rocks, head to Sault Ste Marie (Kewadin), and backtrack to Brimley for the night (Bay Mills).
Tuesday - Head south towards home. Will probably hit the tiny casino in Hessel, just so I can say I hit all of them (have been there before).
Did I miss any? I'm also a fan of historic bars and brewpubs, so if there are any along my route, please let me know.
