Michigan Miles – Home

Roadside RV stop - Straits

What’s not to love about RVing around the Great Lakes in the summertime? That’s what I found out during the summer of 2011!

There’s much more to come, as I’m redesigning this special Michigan Miles site so I can collect comments, suggestions, answer questions, and hear about your own experiences.  In the meantime, I have links to some of the original pages on Malia’s Miles on some of the new pages here.

Also check out blog posts about Michigan

I’d also love it if you’d subscribe to this site, using the options in the right column, to either get email notices when it’s updated or by RSS feed.

I love to hear from you!

Comment on any page or email me at MaliasRV AT MichiganMiles . com (remove spaces and replace the AT with @.  As you can tell, I’m trying to beat the spam bots.) I’ve had to remove Contact Me page since the amount of spam I got at this address was ridiculous.


My initial decision to spend the summer of 2011 in Michigan was to meet my virtual assistant business clients. After all, they’re the ones that make it possible for me to support my travel habit!

But once I started looking at all there was to see and do in this beautiful state, I was amazed I hadn’t thought of it before. I set a pretty ambitious schedule, starting on the northeast coast, worked my way north, into the U.P., over to the Porkies, and back down the west side. Although I changed the return itinerary after the Porkies, here’s a link to the planned map of my entire trip.  I’ll be updating this when I’m through with all the other pages of where I actually went.

Public Pictures on Facebook:
Button - FacebookEven though I haven’t competed all formal website pages, I posted pictures and descriptions regularly to Facebook so my family and friends could keep up. These pages are all public, so you won’t need a Facebook account to see them. If I do say so myself, some of the pictures are amazing, but then with this subject matter, how can you help it!
