We are officially halfway through our road trip through the upper midwest. (Feel free to read about days one, two and three).
When we go on our road trips, not all of our destinations are necessarily known to draw tourists. Sometimes we have to spend the night in an area just because it is on the way to our next destination.
It is during these times that we get acquainted with small towns. I have never lived in a small town – I have lived in suburbs my entire life.
That was where we found ourselves last night – in a small town halfway through the lower part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
