On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, and telling you all about the amazing Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in the great state of Michigan.
Voted one of America’s most beautiful places by Good Morning America, this truly is a magical destination that demonstrates why the National Parks might be our country’s greatest idea ever. We will talk about the best drives, hikes, swims, and even shopping in the Sleeping Bear Dunes park.
This episode goes along with two different Campground of the Week episodes: #41 about Holiday Park in Traverse City and #42 about the Platte River Campground in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Both are amazing places to stay while visiting the region. We cover completely different activities and food options in the different episodes, so be sure to listen to all three if you are planning a visit of your own in the future!
In the News Roundup, we talk about our latest post up on the Progressive blog about RVing with dogs. Check it out to see all we have learned from our RV travels with Maggie this year!
We also remind our listeners to save the date and visit us at the Hershey RV show from September 14th-18th! We will also be at the Florida RV Supershow from January 17th-22nd, 2017.
This episode is separated into three segments:
- Your first day in the park: recommendations for the Visitor Center, Pierce Stocking Drive, and the Dune Climb
- Hikes and swims in the park
- A Day in Glen Arbor
There is enough to keep you busy for many, many visits to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. But these fantastic recommendations will get you started in the right direction.
You might think that Glacier and Yosemite are the crowned jewels of the NPS. But we know that Sleeping Bear Dunes will have you picking your jaw up off the ground. You are listening to Episode 103: Greetings from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore!
