Listen to the Great Waters

Yesterday my dad and I were watching Tim Allen being bested by his sidekick Al on a rerun of TV’s Home Improvement, and today I’m listening to him (Allen, not Dad) talk about the Great Waters of the Eastern Upper Peninsula.

Travel Michigan has announced a new Great Waters radio ad in the award-winning Pure Michigan advertising campaign featuring the voice of Allen, a Michigan native, actor, and comedian.

Tune into the NEW! NEW! NEW! ad by clicking here.

The designated Great Waters region covers a lot of territory, some of which you’ve read about in these blog posts.

This part of the state is where three of the Great Lakes surround the land north of the Mackinac Bridge, the Straits of Mackinac, where Lakes Michigan and Huron meet, Drummond Island at the far eastern tip of the UP, north to Sault Ste. Marie, and stretching westward to Munising (which truly is a stretch: it looks more like the Mid or even Western UP to my untrained eye).

Anyway, on Travel Michigan’s official state Web site you can learn about three trails that traverse each of the three Great Lakes mentioned—and things to see and do along the way, such as hikes, waterfall watching, rockhounding, just beaching it, or paddling your own (or a rented) canoe.

Give the new ad a listen, and enjoy the Great Waters of Michigan.
