Northern Escapes, Gorgeous Resorts Part of Pure Michigan’s September Travel Deals

September in Michigan means we’re riding that sweet weather line between sunny, warm days and the first sensations of crisp fall air. It is the perfect time to enjoy a mini adventure. And if you can save money on it, all the better.

Our friends at Pure Michigan have posted their monthly list of featured travel deals across the state, and the September savings have some nice finds. When the autumn breeze rolls in, anywhere in the Boyne is a great place to recharge, so we were happy to see The Highlands offering make the list. Earl’s new rooftop bar in Charlevoix looks like a really quaint place to visit, and the savings list is rounded out by a Grand Rapids vacation that comes with a Founders Brewing gift card, a nice touch.

These are the September offers:
