horse and carriage. We will be there during
their annual Lilac Festival. The island will be
buzzing with fun! We will travel through

We continue our journey as we cross the
Upper Peninsula and drive across the

Our morning begins with a narrated

Island’s interior and includes Surrey Hills,

Hotel where we will enjoy bountiful
feast featuring garden-fresh salads, savory
cheeses, low-roasted meats, seafood and
more than 20 varieties of fresh-baked
pastries. This afternoon is the annual Lilac
