There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the vehicle that’s right for you. Some of the things to take into consideration are all of the vehicle’s features, what the vehicle is best for, how many it seats, and what the interior and exterior look like.

We hope this new feature will give you a better look into our vehicles and ultimately help you pick the right one for you!

Friday, September 29th, 2017

The fall season is a gorgeous time in Michigan. From the changing leaves and crisp, cool weather to the cider mills and apple orchards, there’s nothing quite like fall in Michigan. It’s the perfect time to plan a vacation to scope out the beautiful views this state has to offer – and Trinity can take your group there! We’ve compiled a list of some great cities to visit (and a few things to do in each) to get you started.

Upper Peninsula:

  • Sault Ste. Marie – Sault Ste. Marie has plenty of things to do from exploring ships to visiting the breathtaking Tahquamenon Falls to touring museums and historic sites. On top of the usual sites, Sault Ste. Marie also has a Fall Colors Tour, where you can discover the bright colors of fall in the Eastern Upper Peninsula.
