Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Known for its breathtaking scenery, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is covered in sand dunes that tower more than 450 feet above Lake Michigan. Visitors can climb to the tip top of the dunes to admire and enjoy their surroundings or eat a picnic lunch at the bottom. The protected natural area also offers nearly 100 miles of trails for hiking, biking and snowshoeing, including the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, which weaves its way around the lakeshore past many of the park’s dunes and bodies of water.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Pictured Rocks, America’s first national registered lakeshore, overlooks southern Lake Superior in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula. Its rugged, diverse landscape attracts outdoorsy types year-round. On the lakeshore’s roughly 100 miles of hiking trails and paths, travelers can see and view everything from spring wildflowers to colorful fall foliage to stunning ice formations, depending on the season of the year. Plus, visitors can swim and also boat in the warmer months and ice climb and cross-country ski during the colder months of the winter. But please remember, lifeguards do not patrol the lakeshore’s beaches, so vacationers should be careful when getting in Lake Superior’s unpredictable waters and take care to protect themselves.

Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island’s old-world charm comes from a ban on motorized vehicles on the island (think: horse-drawn carriages and Victorian-style buildings) creates the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway or family vacation. The island banned cars in 1898, so tourists – or Fudgies as locals call them – can only access the island by private boat, ferry or private plane. Once on Mackinac, visitors can taste some of its world-famous fudge of all varieties, tour historical sites like Fort Mackinac and see the butterfly gardens, and also explore the island’s state park, which covers more than 80% of the island. Many people bicycle on a bicycle built for one or two around the 8 mile bike trail. Bars and restaurants of all varieties dot main street and the surrounding area of downtown. Keep in mind, though, that many of Mackinac Island’s attractions are closed during the winter months despite the island being accessible year-round. 

Traverse City

This little city of 21,000 residents may look to the naked eye like just another scenic lake town. But rest assured, Traverse City is so much more than a sleepy town. This northern Michigan destination has, over the years, earned a reputation as a culture and foodie hub that draws people from as far as Chicago that has certainly added to its already awe-inspiring curb appeal. One of the biggest film festivals in the country, the Traverse City Film Festival, is held in Traverse City every year in the beautiful summertime Not only that, but its annual National Cherry Festival is one of the largest events in the country.
