About the Author

A native of New Orleans, Laura Martone has been an avid traveler since childhood. Growing up, she and her mother would often take long road trips to fascinating U.S. landmarks, such as the Rocky Mountains and Monticello. After graduating from Northwestern University in 1998 with a dual degree in English and Radio/TV/Film, Laura continued to explore America with her husband, Daniel. Equally fond of cultural and natural wonders, she has a particular affinity for the state of Michigan, where she spends her summers.

Laura first traveled to the Great Lakes State in 2000 to visit her husband’s family, and has experienced a lot of this incredibly diverse locale ever since. Over the years, she’s searched for Petoskey stones along the shores of Lake Superior, picked wild blueberries in the woods of the Lower Peninsula, toured an active GM truck plant in the Flint area, and attended the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City—and she’s not done yet.

When not in Michigan, Laura divides her time between New Orleans and Los Angeles, where she operates two film festivals with her husband. She’s contributed articles to MotorHome, Route 66 Magazine, RV Journal, and The Ecotourism Observer. In addition, she’s written and edited several other guidebooks, including Moon Baja RV Camping.

More About the Author

A native of New Orleans, Laura Martone has been an avid traveler since childhood. While growing up, she and her mother would often take long road trips to fascinating U.S. landmarks, such as the Rocky Mountains and Monticello. After graduating from Northwestern University in 1998 with a dual degree in English and Radio/TV/Film, Laura continued to explore the world with her husband, Daniel. Since 1999, they've lived in Henley-on-Thames, England, ventured to Baja California, and roamed America's byways in a cozy home-on-wheels. While living on the road, they crawled through the twisting tunnels of Kentucky's Mammoth Cave, searched for diamonds in Arkansas, hiked the magnificent Grand Canyon, and sampled the wineries of Napa Valley.

Equally fond of cultural and natural wonders, she has a particular affinity for the state of Michigan, where she spends her summers. When not in the Great Lakes State, Laura divides her time between New Orleans and Los Angeles, where she operates two film festivals with her husband. She's contributed articles to National Geographic Traveler, MotorHome, Route 66 Magazine, RV Journal, and The Ecotourism Observer. In addition, she's written and edited several guidebooks, including Moon Michigan, Moon Florida Keys, Moon Baja RV Camping, Moon Metro Los Angeles, and Insight Pocket Guides San Diego. Her newest traveling companion is her adaptable kitty, Ruby Azazel, who seems to relish the ever-changing scenery.

We used this book to plan a trip to the Traverse City area and it was very helpful in planning what to see/do--especially with kids. If you are only planning to go to the Traverse City/Mackinac area, you could buy the Moon's smaller book on just this area; it contains the same info.

I spent 9 days wandering around Michigan this summer and this was my guide. I went from Detroit to the top of the Upper Peninsula and back down the West Coast of Michigan without too many definite plans. As I would roll into each city I would pull over and flip to the index for a quick summary and found many pleasant surprises awaiting me. Does this book cover everything? How could any book sum up the lives of 9 million people in a few hundred pages! It lists some history, interesting sights and a couple of restaurants for each place. It does an excellent job of getting you to the middle of the action and then it's your job to do the rest, which is most of the fun in travel anyway. This book is a good frame to build a Michigan trip around.

Format: Kindle Edition
This guide seems perfectly okay but lacks some of the offbeat and fun suggestiions of other guides. I like to read about special local cuisine or offbeat drives but there aren't a lot of these. Maybe it's the subject matter. It is quite complete. The Kindle edition has low resolution maps which are virtually unreadable when you try to zoom in.

Not bad for its historic and geographical info, but generally poor coverage for places to stay and eat, and somewhat scanty and blah coverage and mapping in general of one of the most diverse and interesting states in the USA. Too bad, as it's a default purchase for many people who wonder why the serious guidebooks ignore Michigan and Detroit. Surely the state has 10 times as many interesting and beautiful places as Arizona!
