Top Things to Do In Michigan

Michigan has everything from nature to nightlife.

There is so much to do in Michigan, especially during the warmer weather. Lakes, forests and parks make Michigan a great state for those who love to hunt, fish and enjoy nature. Detroit, the Motor City, is experiencing a revival. Head there for arts, culture and dining experiences.

1. Sleeping Bear Dunes

Just a few hours away from Detroit lays the peaceful oasis that is Sleeping Bear Dunes. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a peninsula in Glen Arbor with beautiful sandy dunes on Lake Michigan. The peninsula features small hamlets, quaint shops, and plenty of outdoor activities to do year round.

2. Detroit Zoo

Visit all your favorite animal friends with a trip to the fantastic Detroit Zoo. Animals aren’t the only fun to be had at the Zoo; you can hop a ride on the carousel or take a look at the Science On a Sphere display. If you’re there during the summer months you can even have a real giraffe encounter where you’ll be able to feed these great animals up close.

3. Birch Run Premium Outlets
