Best Road Trips in Michigan: The River Road Scenic Byway

Published on July 12, 2022
🚙 Let me know if you’ve cruised along the River Road Scenic Byway in northeastern Michigan before!
    This road runs through the Huron-Manistee National Forest along the Au Sable River from Mio in the West to Oscoda in the East.
      There are many beautiful, scenic overlooks along the way including several unique monuments including:
      • 💦Iargo Springs
      • 🛶 Canoe Paddlers Monument
      • 🪵 Lumberman’s Monument & Visitors Center
      🌅 Champagne Hill Overlook
        You can even hop aboard the AuSable River Queen to go on a ferry boat ride along the river!
          No joke, this area shocked me with how much natural beauty there is! And when we visited on a weekend in the middle of summer, it was dead. 😨 We encountered only a couple other families, and at some stops, we were the only visitors.
            Don’t sleep on this spot in the lower peninsula guys! There’s a lot of beauty in the lower peninsula too! 😍
