Who needs Punxsutawny Phil? The 2013 West Michigan Carefree Travel Guide has arrived so we know that spring can’t be far away. Request your free copy from the West Michigan Tourist Association and start planning for the warm days ahead.
The 84-page magazine covers the Lake Michigan side of the Lower Peninsula, from the Indiana border to the Straits of Mackinac, in six regions.
It’s packed with info on lodging, state parks, trails and recreation, wineries, the hopping craft beer scene, pet-friendly scoops, events and festivals, and family fun in all four seasons.
There’s an interesting look at a half-dozen historic sites “Then and Now,” and first-hand accounts from visitors with very different West Michigan travel experiences—all good, of course.

If you do choose to ignore that furry Phil—he’s only been correct in his predictions about the arrival of spring 39% of the time—pay attention to Michigan’s groundhog Woody. She’s nailed the seasonal shift in 10 of her 14 predictions at the Howell Nature Center.
