My wife and I will be taking a short (5 day or so) road trip out of St. Louis leaving this Saturday.
Currently we are looking at gouing up to the UP of Michigan, along the Superior shore some way into Wisconsin, and then ambling back. Aside from meeting some friends for lunch in Chicago the first day, our itinerary is wide open and can be easily changed. Anyone have any favorite sites, destinations, restaurants (of any type), or anything else they might like to mention that lie vaguely along this route?
We have a moderate budget and are in decent shape -- ideas for short-to-medium hikes (say up to a few miles) are especially welcome.
