Anyone who has been to the Midwest can attest to fact that this area of the county is simply beautiful. Michigan, especially, has a ton of gorgeous lakes and rivers, as do neighboring states such as Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio and beyond.
One of the nation’s most prestigious travel publications, Travel + Leisure, has released its annual list of the best resorts in the Midwest. As it turns out, Michigan has not one, not two but an impressive three resorts on their tally. “The Midwest is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the caves of Missouri to the unspoiled forests and woods of Wisconsin and everything in between,” the publication states. “The best resorts in the Midwest put all of this natural splendor at travelers’ fingertips.”
As for methodology of the study, Travel + Leisure states, “Every year for the World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated hotel brands on their locations, rooms/facilities, food, service, and overall value.” There are some familiar favorites on this list, as the No. 1 resort has been a top contender for years, and some new places to visit. Read on for the full list of the 10 Best Resorts in the Midwest, three of which are in Michigan. How many of these spots have you visited? I’m embarrassed to admit that I haven’t stayed at even one of these resorts. Hopefully I’ll get to experience them one day. These are the best resort hotels in the Midwest, as determined by readers’ votes in the 2022 World’s Best Awards survey. Find more information and the full article via Travel + Leisure’s site here.
