This is very interesting and chock full of great info. Love it! And I love a good picnic roadside when I'm traveling north in Michigan :)

Dominique King

Thanks for stopping by, Lauren. Picnics on the way north sound perfect to me!
I got a real kick out of the differentiation between a Roadside Park and a Roadside Table. But, no matter how you look at it, Michigan was pretty much the forerunner when it came to providing a place for travelers to take a break along the road.
