We stopped at the Martyrs Shrine on our day trip to midland. Grounds were beautiful with lots of sights to see. Very busy, could be due to the civic holiday weekend, but recommend to plan your trip accordingly with extra time allotted.

A nice place to walk around, very interesting and a beautiful church. There are even picnic tables to have lunch at. The church is active so you can attend Mass, good place to learn some history as well.
