Quotes and Press from Up North Fans
"Many profess to love the outdoors, but sometimes it’s hard to find the time to plan the perfect outdoor adventure. Petoskey-based Pine Lake Design's website, weareupnorth.com, helps the 'weekend warrior' enjoy all that Northern Michigan has to offer."
Grand Rapids Press - MLive.com
Dylan Valade will be explaining We Are Up North, a website that shows people "how to maximize their limited vacation time and weekends by exploring our hand picked and tested destinations."
"People have had to tighten their belts and save,” Valade said. "But living in Michigan during tough times is perfect, because you still have access to … exotic year-round vacation activity within a half day drive."
"I LOVE the idea of what you have put together! We are from downstate but have a place in Gaylord and are always looking for 'day trips' from up there to see more of our incredible state.
I don't think that we would take part in the geocache stuff (so far, that hasn't caught on in our family), but will subscribing get us the weekly information on the different cities you're highlighting?
Thanks for getting this info out there for us! I'm very excited for us to dig through and find our next adventure to a new up north city!"
YES MARGIE, SUBSCRIBING TO THE NEWSLETTER GETS YOU ACCESS TO THE WEEKLY UP NORTH EXPERIENCES! Everyone should join the newsletter!
Regarding Wildwood Rush Zip Line:
"It was pretty cool, but it was 16 bucks a pop for a 40 second ride... honestly though, I'd do it again"
"I really liked the website. Lots of great info. Loved their personal comments. My vote--this is a hit!"
"I am going to forward to my kids and try to tempt them to vacation 'up north'"
There is nothing like the the clean fresh air and the quiet, relaxing.
