Her favorite family vacation spot in Michigan...
My favorite Michigan vacation spot is Saugatuck. An adorable town and harbor, with wonderful galleries and shops. Nearby are sand dunes and the beautiful beaches. Nothing is better than enjoying an ice cream after an active day as the sun sets over Lake Michigan!
