It's the most wonderful time of year to take a Christmas Day trip to several wonderful destinations right here in beautiful Michigan.

First stop on the "Day Trip" list is Christmas, Michigan.  Situated on Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the small town implements the holiday theme whenever possible.

Another great Christmas Day Trip is Mackinac Island.  The island is very popular in winter.  In fact, the island is known as "one of the Top 10 Christmas Towns in America," according to cable channel HGTV.

What about Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village?  A perfect date or family field trip, Greenfield Village is hosting Holiday Nights on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning Nov. 30.  Greenfield Village is located in Dearborn, a border city just west of Detroit.   For more information, check out the Detroit Free Press.
