What clothing should we bring to go rock hunting in May? Are there any local secrets or places to go or things to do? It’ll be our first time in MI! Thinking about going to Leland, Munising and Mackinaw island. We’re staying in Mackinaw City. We don’t want a lot of touristy things to do. Thank you in advance.

Your best bet is to check the weather a week or so out.

Not sure what type of rock picking you are looking for. There are areas around Mackinac Island that feature fairly rocky shoreline.

I believe you are allowed to take 25 pounds of rocks from a state park per year. That would apply to Mackinac Island. I think it is illegal to take rocks or anything from US National Lakeshore, which is a large part of the Munising area. You may want to do some checking in advance if you have not already done so.

The snow is much more likely than 80 degrees, but you will probably have neither.

Whitefish Point is a great place for agates. Petoskey State Park is a good place for Petoskey stones.

Tahquamenon Falls is a beautiful place to go! Beautiful falls, trails, park! Upper falls has a place to eat, and local beers. We enjoy spending the day there.
