“…and roomy too.”
Story Behind the Name
How many different ways can you say that a vehicle is spacious? We just needed three. Seriously, after 7 seasons in an Explorer and an Expedition, the RV is like a rolling hotel room. Can’t wait to get back into an RV again…
On this road ready rendition of UTR we bring you our first ever RV Adventure. First we head north to Sea Shell City (be careful how you say it). Then we hit the UP for some smoky fish, big burgers, a lost city and a righteous restaurant. Heck, we even wander through Wisconsin and take a big boat back.
Get ready to find out why RVing is a great way to see Michigan.When was the last time you hopped into an RV and explored the Great State of Michigan. Yea … me either … but I plan to remedy that right now. All aboard Fellers !
That’s right UTR is going RVing … and there aint no stopping us now, because recreational vehicles are one of the best ways to have fun with friends and family. Whether you rent it, buy it or borrow it … RVs come in all shapes and sizes … and they’re a great way to get up close and personal with the plethora of cool people, places and things we have here. So, hop on … cuz here we go!
On this our first RV adventure we decided to head north in search of hijinks and hilarity …
In the morning we mounted up Steve the RV and headed west for UP parts unknown. We weren’t sure what we’d discover or uncover, but one thing you can count on … it will probably involve food.
So, we drove along the coast of Lake Michigan … through Escanaba in the daylight … and on to the southern most reaches of the UP. This is where we entered a town we’ve been talking about since season one on UTR.
Menominee is a port city that sits right on the shores of Lake Michigan. It was named after a Native American tribe and holds the distinction of being the southern most town in the UP. It’s at about the same latitude as Gaylord in the Lower Peninsula, and it’s so far away, it’s even on Central Time.
Menominee is also the fourth biggest city in the UP and has a beautiful, historic downtown with lots to see and do. So, we decided to do just that.
