*We LOVE the National Park Service, and think they do an incredible job. We haven't been to a park we haven't enjoyed yet. $80 for the NPS park pass for the year has been one of our best investments ever.
Each stop has its own charm and mini-culture. We loved exploring around these places, and appreciated their locations the most.
We have been very impressed and learned so many random and interesting things. Getting an ASTCS membership through the Grand Rapids Public Museum has also been one of our best investments.
Disclaimer--while we really enjoyed our time in these states, we still plan to move back to Michigan this summer, to stay.
We eat out fairly regularly, but often look for kid-friendly familiar places most of the time. We have enjoyed many different restaurants and experiences, but these were the first ones that came to mind.
It is an incredible opportunity to get to see and experience so many places, and we are very grateful.
