For Metro-Detroiters, I-75 North leads to some pretty incredible places that we like to call “Up North”. Most families have their summer vacation spots that they traditionally visit and some are lucky enough to own a second home typically called a cottage or lake house. No matter the location or our reason for visiting “Up North” we all feel the same sense of Pure Michigan relaxation as soon as we arrive.
One of my favorite places “Up North” is Indian River, Exit 310. What began in 1976 as seven college buddies canoeing down a river has turned into a crazy group of friends that over the years have become family. We meet under the same tree, on the same beach, the same weekend in July. This weekend is spent mainly relaxing the day away at the beach or sitting around the campfire at the cabins, but we do manage to venture out for some good golf, eats and of course, lots of drinks.
