7. Cadillac, Michigan
Originally a logging community named Clam Lake, Cadillac is a great destination in northwest Michigan. A perfect getaway for a nature lover, venture outdoors for hunting or fishing at Mitchell State Park. There are also plenty of hiking and biking trails, as well as swimming in Lake Mitchell or Lake Cadillac.
If you are not looking for an outdoors adventure, take a stroll around the downtown shopping areas or visit the Wexford County Historical Society and Museum. Get some insight into how people used to live and farm in the area, or attend one of the many events and festivals often hosted here. Finally, for some good ole fun, spend a day at the Adventure Island, Cadillac’s family- friendly amusement park. Good for any and all ages, Cadillac suits people of all interests and pursuits.
