Take the lady friend wine tasting in TC, get a hot tub room and enjoy her after she enjoys some wine.

Just drive up the road and stay at the campground on 17 mile and 131, beautiful campground overlooking a 1 acre lake. Doesn't get any better than that!

go up to boyne highlands and do the zip line tour. Then take the lady out to a nice dinner in petoskey and get a reasonably priced room at a reasonably priced hotel with a pool and a hot tub (best western is usually pretty cheap in petoskey and pretty clean and maintained)

I know that campground. Everytime we drive by the wife and I remark "Who the heck would camp at that place"!

Heck just fill up the car and wing it. Sometimes the ladies like to be surprised when you take them on a secret trip. Especially cause they think you planned it all yourself. Little does she know that you only planned one thing...gettin lucky!
