I have some old ARMY friends, and their families (all the kids are 6 and under) coming into town next month for 4/5 days, and we are trying to get a plan on what to do in the area. If you were trying to show off our state to others, what would you do that is within the SE Michigan area?

We are going fishing one of the days for sure, and then we were thinking about the Huckleberry Railroad in Flint, and then stop at Frankenmuth for dinner. They are wanting to stay around the Tri County area, or not far from it. They don't want to spend all there time behind a windshield. Who can blame them, they came here to see me.

Would do Noonas, but they won't be here on a Tuesday night, they are all leaving on a Tuesday Morning.

Take them to Port Huron. At Vantage Point you can watch the freighters go by & the guys from Boatnerds.com broadcast the info on each ship that passes by. A little further north you can walk along the river near the Blue Water bridges & watch the freighters motor into the river from Lake Huron. People go there from all over the world to see the freighters "you can almost touch." Their words, not mine.

These are good suggestions. I would also add the Edsel Ford house in Grosse Pointe.

I wanted them to come last month, so all the guys could join me at Jobbie Nooner, but Laura put a screaching hault to that one.

Do a walleye charter, musky charter or something like that. Metro beach for a day. Frankenmuth has an indoor water park that Chloe went to for her Girl Scout camp this year and they all loved it! Frankenmuth for a couple days would be cool. Womenfolk can shop, men can drink, and kids can swim!

August 22nd-October 4th is the Renaissance Festival. Again, women shop, men drink and eat turkey legs, and the kids have a blast watching all the nutjobs walking around in tights! But that would mean you'd have to leave yours at home Mike.

I think You can still take the train from the station on cass in mount clemens to the airplane museum at selfridge, its not huge but it's pretty cool.

dinner at the top of the ren cen is cool, but pricey, comerica park is nice depending on the schedule. or lions training camp, if you need a laugh.
