We just stayed in St. Ignace this past weekend. We rode snowmobiles to Hulbert, Rudyard and another town around there that I can't think of...I saw signs for Newberry all over. We might have gone through it while we were driving around. We did go up to Tahquamenon Falls in Paradise, but, there wasn't much going on.
It was fun, but it was pretty dead in St. Ignace, which is to be expected. Very cool places though, although, the snowmobiling was not good.
I am approximately 6 hours from you.
