If you’re after day-trip inspiration, we’ve got some suggestions. Sitting 30 miles away, West Branch is worth hopping in the car for. Tanger Outlets West Branch, Irons Park and Ogemaw Hills Pathway Trailhead alone make the drive out worthwhile. Don’t skip Ossineke either! Just 30 miles away, Mich-e-ke-wis Park, Dinosaur Gardens Prehistorical Zoo and Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox are must-sees here.
