We all like to take a stroll down memory lane.  This video shows Michigan

back before our childhood days. It was filmed in 1949 as part of James A.

Fitzpatrick’s Travel Talks.  Take a look at our bathing beauties, the “Bear

Man” and our stunning Michigan scenery. 


The areas shown have grown and changed but the appeal of 

Michigan is still being promoted to tourists today.  And they come by

the thousands to see our unique treasures, such as Sleeping Bear Dunes

on Lake Michigan.  This area is now a National Park and dune buggies

are prohibited on the fragile dune landscape.


 Mackinaw Island has attracted people since early times, the original

residents here in Michigan; the Ojibwa, the French, the English, and

tourists have been coming here since Victorian times.




Thanks for visiting  with us in Michigan along this vintage highway

to the past.  We hope you decide to visit us in person real soon.
