Michigan Vacations

Michigan vacations can be a fun and exciting vacation spot for the whole family. It could even be quite educational with it being rich in history.

On your Michigan vacations, another hot sight seeing vacation spot is Mackinac Island State Park. This 1,800-acre park was originally established in 1875. It has distinctive stone formations such as the Arch Rock and Sugar Loaf that are under the towering cedar and birch trees. There are dozens of intertwining paths that make for wonderful sight seeing either by foot, bike, or horse drawn carriages.

If lighthouses are your fancy, there are over 115 for you to get a gander at on your Michigan vacations. Being the only state that borders four of the Great Lakes, lighthouses are in abundance. Several are open to the public after being restored. Big Bay Point, Sand Hills, and Whitefish Point are now bed and breakfasts.

Full of culture and history Muskegon has many historic points of interest, a Word War II Landing Ship Tank and submarine, and many lighthouses. For a more cultural experience, you can visit the Frauenthal Theatre, the Museum of Art, or the Muskegon County Museum.
