things to do in Michigan - Clinton Twp, MI

From outdoor wonders to incredible venues, Michigan has so much to offer. Make 2020 the best year yet in the Wolverine State by enjoying these five highly rated things to do in Michigan.

Marvel at Mother Nature

Michigan has been blessed by Mother Nature’s best gifts, as evidenced by the famous Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The U.S. National Park on Lake Superior features breathtaking views and natural wonders such as sand dunes, waterfalls, beaches, sandstone cliffs, and lakes.

Go on a wilderness adventure

Equally as beautiful, but more rugged and remote than the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, is the Isle Royale National Park. An epic journey of backpacking, hiking, and kayaking await you as you venture out into the breathtaking wilderness. Be sure to plan your wilderness adventure during April 16-Oct. 31, as the park and its surrounding islands are off limits to visitors from Nov. 1-April 15.

Enjoy small town charm

Mackinac Island is a charming destination nestled on a picturesque island. Be sure to explore the island on bike, indulge in Michigan-famous fudge, and take a scenic ride in a horse-drawn carriage.

See the light

Lighthouses are plentiful in Michigan and stand as a unique part of the state’s fascinating maritime history.  As you travel through the region, a visit to one (or all) of these structures should be in order.

Toast to good times

Traverse City is a fun-filled town and famous the world over for its wine. If you find yourself here, be sure to explore the Traverse Wine Coast that boasts approximately 40 unique wineries.

Make sure your vehicle is up to the task of exploring Michigan by scheduling a maintenance check at Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck. Or, better yet, stop in to get behind the wheel of a new car.

Buick Highest Rated Automotive Brand in JD Power CSI

J.D. Power published this year’s Customer Service Index study, and Buick scored big. The mass-market brand landed at the top of the rankings for the third year in a row. Booking appointments digitally increased customer satisfaction. Thanks to its industry-leading service, Buick was the Highest Rated Automotive Brand.

Buick scored 857 out of a possible 1,000 points, putting it ahead of second-place MINI and third-place Mitsubishi. Chevrolet and GMC ranked fourth and fifth, respectively. Although Buick models feature luxurious amenities and affordable pricing, the brand still competes with mass-market manufacturers. Premium brands were rated separately, although Buick’s score competed with the top brands there as well.

Thirty-four percent of survey respondents stated they preferred to communicate via text message. Unfortunately, less than 10 percent of service departments use text as a method of communication.

Buick continues to streamline the car ownership experience, and that dedication played a major role in the brand’s success. More consumers enjoy the convenience of booking service appointments digitally. Many preferred to communicate with dealers via text messaging.

While some brands lag behind and have yet to implement technology into sales and service, Buick is ahead of the curve. Notably, the Customer Service Index survey found brands with an all-digital experience scored 75 points higher.

Get a closer look at what Buick has to offer and why it is the highest rated mass-market automotive brand for dealership service when you visit Jim Causley Buick GMC.
