Take in the beauty of the gorgeous Great Lakes State

From the Chicago and Territorial roads, home of a historic and scenic railroad, to the Lower Peninsula's Chain of Lakes area, Backroads & Byways of Michigan is the shortest route a visitor can take to knowing the state like a local. Now in a beautiful new color design, this third edition offers updated itineraries to scenic and intriguing places, like Michigan's Wine Country—where you can sample local wines, chocolate truffles, and orchard fruits—and Western Michigan, once a mining area, now a winter-recreation wonderland and home of many spectacular waterfalls.

The Backroads & Byways series provides you with all the crucial information you need to make every moment of your journey count. This guide features maps, photographs, and detailed listings for points of interest on every drive.
