Each year, 760 WJR’s Paul W. Smith embarks on a trip across our Great Lakes State for a travel adventure that can only be defined as Pure Michigan.
Leave the day-to-day behind for spaces that inspire, exhilarate, challenge, and refresh. Join in as we discover historic locales, scenic wonders, adventure-filled cityscapes, and delectable tastes, all while meeting friends – both old and new – that remind us why we come back each year for more.
It’s all part of the Paul W. Smith Pure Michigan Tour, exclusively from 760 WJR.
