If you’re the type of person who plans your next meal while you’re still eating, you’ve hit the right menu for mouthwatering inspiration across the country. Stomachs, let’s get ready to rumble!

Ludington Uncovered

By: Holly Bowne

Chris and I love everything about Ludington State Park. It’s considered one of Michigan’s best state parks for good reason. Spanning 5,300 acres, it offers incredible natural beauty along with a boatload of outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, fishing, camping, bicycling, and tranquil inner-tube floats down the Big Sable River. It’s seriously a vacation all by itself!
