I will be Ann Arbor Michigan between 10th to 15th of May 2021. I was wondering if there are places with-in 2-3 hours of driving distance where I can go and take some Northern lights photographs. Any suggestions/location in the area?

Also Any place that I can visit and do some photo hunting :D

Although Northern Light do appear in the Lower part of MI - itís very infrequent - you would need to go up to the upper peninsula of Michigan to have a decent chance of seeing NLís

Have you done a search for predicted NL appearances? Iíve seen a couple articles/links but I donít have them now.

Thank you Janine, I did search online as you suggested and yes people are saying I should go to UP in case if I really want to capture but noticed that the drive over 6 hours where i will be :D

Will check out to see what all other stuff I can do over there.

Your closer to 8 hours realistically BC you have to go way NORTH!!!

I donít know if there is a restaurant called Winn Schulers thatís still in Ann Arbor - that was their first location - as a kid (and thatís a long - long time ago!!!) my parents would take us for a special treat - Iím not sure how itís rated today - but if itís still open - check the reviews - and if they are still positive reviews - itís a good restaurant.

Iím from SW Michigan - I can tell you all sorts of things there! How long until you go??? Holland Michigan is spectacular with tulips in Apr/May (look it up) - spring in Southern Michigan is really nice - apple, pear, cherry (edible) blossoms - I know itís just now sprinting according to my friends. Look for botanical gardens - those should be really nice this time of year - Frankenmuth is an interesting town - Christmas year round!!!

Just south of you is Amish land - Shipshewana, IN

Have you ever read any of James Alexander Thom books? Read Red/Follow the River - youíll be passing through many of the areas talked about in those 2 books...really good books!!!

Just some thoughts about Southern MI
