Go to the UP. You will love it, Mackinac Island doesn't count.

Been to both. Is that large crucifix of Jesus still around?

I liked the UP a lot when we visited.  In summer.

Would be good to post places we're been that might not occur to folks to visit (and perhaps vice versa).  One for me would be Greenville, SC (for a day).

Not only boring but waste of time. Just how I saw the place. It was a long time ago - 1980's.

One of my favorite places to stay is the Hotel New Grand in Yokohama, Japan. We stayed in the suite Gen. MacArthur used as a mini HQ. I was told Babe Ruth and Charlie Chaplin stayed at the hotel, too. I told the woman to add LRRPS to the list of cool dudes who stayed at the hotel.  Cool We also stayed in the modern tower. It was nice.

One of the most overrated places I have stayed is the International Hotel of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia. The American Red Cross booked several rooms including a top tier room for Elizabeth Dole. She ended up staying in Kuwait City, so the brass 'volunteered' several of us to get on a UH 60 and go stay at the rooms since the rooms were already paid for. It was ok, but for the coin spent is was overrated. The worst part was the bath robe with the initials E.D. on it and the slippers in size 7 were non exchangeable. I gave them to some TCN (third world national). He seemed very happy. Filipino dude named Leo.

At ATL for flight to SEA, then Alaska. Had to pull both suitcases to MARTA, ha.

Wife is doing better. Beautiful clear day here, low RH, can see downtown from the lounge.

No grits only oatmeal. Bummer.

The dude Leo thought the robe and slippers were great. He thought the E.D. was short for Edward. Elizabeth Dole probably wouldn't have used either the robe or slippers. A very 'privileged' broad.
