How Far Is It To Speedway Big Rapids Mi? [Solved!]

If you’re planning on visiting the beautiful state of Michigan this summer, there are a few things you should know. The first is that it’s a long way to go. The second is that it pays to plan ahead. And the third is that you should pack accordingly.

Let’s start with the first thing: It’s a long way to go. There are plenty of places along the way that you need to stop off at. You’ll have to pass through the bustling streets of Chicago to get to Wisconsin. But that’s a different story. For now, let’s stay focused on the journey ahead of you.

If you’re driving, you’ll want to make sure you’re going the right way. There are only a few options, and you’ll want to take the right one. You’ll need to go north on Interstate 94 or south on I-75. From there, it’s a straight shot to the west. This is the route to take if you want to get to Speedway and Big Rapids in time for the speedway weekend. But, if you’re in a hurry, take the Interstate 75 North to get to Ann Arbor. This will get you there a little later, but it’s still the quickest route.


No, we don’t mean your suitcase. We mean the clothes you’ll need for the journey ahead. Remember, you’re going to a different country so you may need to bring a few things. Luckily for you, we’ve prepared a few lists of things you may need. So without further ado, here are the top 12 things you need to bring to enjoy yourself during your visit to the great state of Michigan.

1. An international adapter

If you’re traveling internationally, you’ll need an adapter to use the different plugs in the places you stop off at. Most hotels and restaurants use the U.S.A./Canada/UK triple rounder system, so if you’re driving on European roads, it’s likely you’ll need an adapter for your car’s electrical system. Don’t forget to pack some extra ones in case you break one or two along the way. This is a pain to go through security at the airport without them.

2. A map

A good map is essential if you’re traveling in Michigan. You won’t know how to get around without one. It’s easy enough to get lost if you don’t know how many lanes to look for when you leave the interstate. A map can also help you find the best places to eat and stay at. It’s not always easy to discover where the best restaurants and hotels are located when you don’t have access to online reviews.

3. A travel guide

There are literally thousands of places to see in Michigan. You’ll need a travel guide with you to know where to go and what to see. It can also be helpful to know a bit about the history of the state you’re visiting. There are plenty of museums and historic sites that can teach you a lot about Michigan’s past.

4. A laptop or desktop computer

No, we don’t mean you need something to write your blog posts on. What you need is something capable of running apps and surf the web. If you’re traveling by car, it’s likely you’ll have to stop off at lots of gas stations to use the Wi-Fi. It would be best to bring a laptop or desktop so you can work while travelling. Not only is it easy to carry, but you won’t have to worry about finding a place to plug in and charge. If you’re using a mobile device, it can be difficult to use while driving. Especially in Europe where the coverage is often poor and you’ll most likely experience a lot of dropouts. So charging your phone at every stop is not recommended. Bringing a laptop or desktop computer is also ideal because you can use them even when the power outlets are unavailable. Or when you’re outside of a Wi-Fi zone.

5. A digital camera

If you’re not a professional photographer, it’s best not to bring a camera. However, if you’re a passionate photographer who doesn’t mind spending a bit of money, a good digital camera is essential. Not only do they make taking photos easier, but they also make it much more creative. You can always leave your camera at home and use your mobile device to take photos. But when you’re traveling, it’s better to bring a small camera as a backup just in case something happens.

6. A mobile device

We know, we know. This may seem obvious, but it’s amazing how many people forget about this when packing for a trip. If you’re driving, you’ll mostly be using your mobile device to navigate. And let’s face it, GPS systems can definitely be temperamental when you’re traveling. Especially in the UK where the coverage is often poor and a lot of the time you’ll find yourself in a situation where the GPS signal is unable to find a strong signal (which means it’s not working at all). If you do end up in a situation where the GPS isn’t working, you can always use some of the other features on your mobile device to get your bearings. Things like compass and altimeter (if you have a barometer). Compass always works in the right circumstances, but the altimeter can be unreliable. So you may want to reconsider bringing it along. Unless you have something else that you can depend on.

7. A tablet computer

This is a bit of a luxury item, but some travelers really enjoy using tablets on their trips. They allow the user to be more productive while on the go and ensure they have all the information at their fingertips. They also make it much easier for people to get direction while traveling. So if you’re the type of person who finds directions really annoying and often causes you to lose valuable time, a tablet is the answer. Of course, if you already have a laptop or desktop computer, you may not see the need for a tablet. But if you’re looking for an easy way to get things done on the go, it can be a worthwhile investment. Just make sure you have the right charger available if you plan on using it abroad.

8. Travel insurance

Whether you’re going for a day or a week, you’ll most likely want to ensure everything’s covered in the event of an accident or sickness. Travel insurance is relatively inexpensive compared to medical insurance, and it provides coverage for things like medical costs, evacuation costs, and loss of luggage. Don’t forget, insurance policies vary from one country to another, so it’s essential you purchase a policy that covers your specific situation.

9. A hat

Yes, Virginia, you may need more than one hat. You’ll be venturing into the great lakes in the summertime, so it would be wise to bring a hat to prevent overheating. And who knows, maybe you’ll even get a chance to swim with the alligators. (Don’t worry, we’re not going to write an article about alligator-swimming in Michigan. Well, maybe we are.) You may also want to consider bringing a UV blocking hat to prevent damage to your skin from the sun. Don’t forget: the farther north you go, the stronger the sun is. So if you’re planning on going to the beach or planning to visit a lot of historical sites, it may be smart to bring a hat.

10. An umbrella

Speaking of the beach, don’t forget about the umbrella. It doesn’t rain that often in Michigan, but when it does, it doesn’t matter if you’re under an umbrella or not, you’ll get wet. So it’s best to be prepared. If you forget to pack one, don’t worry; you’ll most likely find one at a local store. But if you do end up in a situation where you forget to pack one, there are a few things you can do. First, ask a stranger for help. Second, try to find an indoor place to wait out the bad weather. Third, if you’re at the beach and it starts to rain, go for it. But for the most part, you’ll want to keep your umbrella in your car. It’ll be easy to get wet if you forget it on the beach.
