Dianna Stampfler, Promote Michigan Speakers BureauDianna Stampfler of Promote Michigan will be presenting “Circling Lake Michigan: 1100 Miles of History, Arts & Culture“.

Vacationers have been looping the lake for generations — but the official “Lake Michigan Circle Tour” route wasn’t established until the 1980s when the Michigan Department of Transportation teamed up with West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA) to create the route and its official guidebook. Along the way, find more than 100 lighthouses, countless islands, unique attractions, parks and natural areas, miles of glorious beaches, quaint harbor towns, an internationally-recognized urban center and one “modern marvel” — the Mackinac Bridge. You are invited to take a virtual tour to some of the Lake Michigan Circle Tour’s well-known destinations and its best kept secrets with Dianna Stampfler, who worked for 7 years at WMTA as a primary researcher and promoter of the route.
