"Traverse City coming from the National Cherry Festival at the hotel Indigo. We are having a great time and joining us Now is Dave Llorens, vice president of Travel Michigan. This is a pleasure. That's the first time I met you. It's nice to meet you. Yes, It's great to meet you as well, Kevin and great to see my old friend Frank again back in Traverse City for that old stuff. Yeah, well, my friend who is no longer here every day, Frank, and it's just great to be back, isn't it? It's great to be back. At a big festival that allows the community to show its pride for what it is this this great place with this agriculture and tourism connection, like few other communities. You know, we needed this. After what we've been through this last year. We needed this opportunity to come together as a community. And celebrate in. Everybody's celebrating. Everybody's happy to be back. We were out there in the middle of it all, and people were just having fun. There was not this fear that we had seen over the past 14 months. People were well, It's the most back. I felt since you know a march of last year. And to see people, you know, just stopping and chatting with strangers in the street again, talking about people asking directions. Hey, where did you go to launch? Would you know this and that and and I mean, smiles on people's faces. It really is a much needed boost shot in the arm. You might say, Well, that's that's what these festivals allow you to do, You know, see your neighbors and see people you've never met before. Let them meet you and Travel, you know, provides these opportunities for us to get to know each other and you know, after what we've gone through this last year, not just with Covid. But with all these social challenges that the country went through Think of one of the reasons was is that we weren't able to get out there and see people and You know, Mark Twain put it best when he said that travel is fatal to bigotry, prejudice and narrow mindedness. Because travel lets us get to see people who are different, who look different, sound different. You know it live a different lifestyle. And and we will think things that aren't accurate about people if we if we don't get to meet them and talk to them, But when you get there, you find out, man. We're all the same. We just want to live our lives fully, and now we can Michigan is quite a story to tell, though, for people who are looking for outdoor spaces, and in the last, um, 16 months. I know a lot of people who don't always get out of southeast Michigan. They you know that's where they live. That's where they stay. And suddenly they were starting to see different Michigan. They didn't even know existed. You know, that is the good thing about this covid forced people outside and to your point, Kevin So often, people who have never been maybe hiking a trail or biking on one of our beautiful trail systems or maybe kayaking or stand up paddling things like this. It got people outside and then Think it introduced them to nature. So one of the challenges we're having is that with all these new folks to nature, people don't know the proper protocols of being outside. So let me put a little pitch in. You know what you take in you take out, you know, take only pictures and leave only footprints because it's been really rough for my state Park colleagues to keep things clean and Keep our natural areas natural. So when you get out there love it, but don't love it to death. It's like guys. It's Smokey the bear. Uh, that's true. Absolutely true. So you know, we've really had some challenges at the state parks. This last year. This year. I'm hearing a lot better reports. But now are state parks are absolutely crazy, Busy with campers, So if you were not able to get your campsite this year totally understand. Same thing with hotels by the way, especially here in northern Michigan. So here's a little tip. Don't just only think about those state parks along the big waterfronts, you know, along the Great Lakes we have over 100 state parks in the state. One of the best state park systems in the country. So think about some of those other parks. I was I drove through new ago the other day, and I looked at this beautiful park. There was spectacular. So there are other state parks. Don't forget about your local parks as well. And then there are private campgrounds. Often they provide other amenities that you may not have ever experienced, like with pools and Kid events and you know whatever. So think about those as well and you can always find this information at Michigan org. My daughters and avid camper and she stays at camps. That's all time and she was calling around and they were booked. They were they were just booked, so she ended up going to the upper peninsula. And and I told you, You may never come back because you go you drive across the upper peninsula, and it is every bit as pretty as driving along California's coastline. Absolutely absolutely gorgeous. Some of my favorite drives around the U. P and for motorcycle fans who like to find these little windy roads with beautiful paved paths along the way. You'll find them in the U. P and there's so much to see and to love up there, and there is something different when you cross that Mighty Mac Bridge. It's like your your heart rate. Just the pace just goes down and You know, your blood pressure starts to just kind of calmed down a little bit. It is a calmer. I don't want to see a slower experience. But nature just kind of absorbs you as you absorb it, and it just is a really wonderful experience. You never look at your watch. You don't care what time it is. It doesn't matter if it's time to have some coffee. It's time to go for a while. Yeah, I used to say, try to stay away from your phone. But your phone is not going to work there anyway, so it doesn't matter. Yeah. The guy was talking about when I get over the Milwaukee Bridge. I feel like I'm finally starting to let some of the pressure, you know, attention going. Yeah, but you go over the Mackinac Bridge. That is another experience. I was. I was actually a Mackinaw island last week. I think it was and I had the pleasure of being able to stay there for more more than one night. And there's another experience that people need to do. Just because Mackinac Island is just that special. You know, an island in a state that builds cars for a living, and we have no cars on the island. So the horse and buggies and bikes and walking and all that. And too many people just kind of stay on the exterior of the Islander downtown. But you need to go interior. You need to go into the forested areas and see all that a lot of cool things there. But when you stay more than one night, then you really get it. You really understand that that really need experience in that relaxing experience you can have there as well. They have a run at the near the end of the season, and I did that great turtle race and Yeah, and you go around and some people run some people walk. Some people dribble basketball, so people hula hoop that's like the craziest thing, But there's a wonderful nice breeze. As you go around the entire island is like seven miles or something like that. It's eight miles around eight point something and Yes, it's great. I hope to do that one myself. I am typically in October in Germany at a say on a sales mission, but this year since we're not sure if those international borders are going to be open yet I might actually run that race, so we'll see. Yeah, And then again, you stay and all of a sudden you find yourself gone from the food shops and the T shirt shops into the island. And it's amazing the different things that are there. Of course. Now it is an island and they call it the great turtle because it's kind of like, you know. Turtle back the way that island kinda Kind of leads up a hill. So when you're running, just be prepared and running up that Hill is a little tiring. But once you get up there you are relatively flat space and it's Really cool. There's a bunch of trails through that forest, too. And there are a couple of cemeteries. I like, you know, checking these things out. Here's a little um, uh, interesting factoid. Mackinac Island is one of the places only four of them in the country where you have a cemetery that is always at half mast..
