As we wait for the return of warmer weather, break out the bathing suits and splash around in the pool…
Make the most out of your winter break or simply escape the hustle and bustle of home with a mini Michigan getaway.
Experience the World of Winter at Grand Rapids. The winter festival is January 7th to March 6th. Keep warm and learn more about west Michigan at the Grand Rapids Public Museum downtown. End your day on skates at the public outdoor ice rink at Rosa Parks Circle – it’s located down the street.
Let the kids play, stroll the Storywalk and take a hike through Hawk Island Park and on snowy days go Snow Tubing! Afterwards, warm up at Impressions 5 Children’s Museum. Commemorate your trip with a family photo next to the ‘Love Lansing’ mural at American Fifth Spirits downtown (and order some Craft Cocktails To Go for home!).
Snow tubing, ice skating, zip line adventures, horseback riding and more! Find ALL your favorite winter activities – including both indoor and outdoor heated pools – at Boyne Mountain Resort.
Learn to luge at the Muskegon Adventure Sports Park and get ready for the Winter Olympics (they’re Feb. 4 – 20 in 2022). If luging is not for you, you can also skate on the natural ice rink, skate through the woods on the one-of-a-kind ice skating trail or go on the track for cross country skiers.
It’s always a good time to go to Frankenmuth – and Zehnder’s Snowfest is a can’t miss winter tradition with larger-than-life snow sculptures and beautifully detailed ice carvings. Make the day last longer and book a stay at Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel & Waterpark.
Find more fun and take it a weekend getaway with an indoor waterpark – pick your city and make reservations:
- Mt. Pleasant: Soaring Eagle Waterpark
- Rothbury: Double JJ Resort and Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark
- Traverse City: Great Wolf Lodge
