Travelers across the country and around the world have been using the book “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” as a guidebook for more than a decade now. The book is author Patricia Schultz’s effort to encourage people to get out there and see the great big world around us. Now, there’s a second edition of the book, and she will talk about the new edition of her book on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Schuler book store in the Meridian Mall.

Lake Superior Magazine’s September issue will includes its annual Best of the Lake list. The article highlights reader favorites in dozens of categories, from best spectacular views to best boat ride to best fish sandwich.

"Oddball Michigan: A Guide to 450 Really Strange Places" is a recently published book which seeks to catalog all of the oddball tourist destinations throughout our state, and there are plenty of them.
