What are some other great places to visit in Michigan in the winter?

If you enjoy getting out and exploring the many small towns and attractions in our state that dazzle during the cold weather months, we have a few suggestions for fun getaways in Michigan:

  • Crystal Mountain. Easily one of the coolest resorts in Michigan, Crystal Mountain is an all-inclusive experience that's absolutely magical. This four-season vacation destination draws in visitors of all ages with its abundance of events, recreational activities, and more -- but it truly shines during the winter. In addition to amazing ski slopes and a chair lift, Crystal Mountain features 12 miles of biking trails which can be explored via fat tire bikes. Most trails are open for riding during daylight hours, though one remains open at night. As you make your way along each path, you’ll experience all sorts of forested winter splendor -- Crystal Mountain this time of year is a real-life winter wonderland!
  • Traverse City. This beloved city frequently tops "must-visit" lists here in the Great Lakes State, and with good reason! There’s always something to do and see in Traverse City, whether you’re catching a movie at the State Theatre, splashing at Great Wolf Lodge, or dining on unimaginably delicious Italian fare at Trattoria Stella. With beautiful natural scenery and friendly folks, it’s hard not to enjoy a weekend getaway to Traverse City.


In addition to the above places, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Grand Rapids, Mackinac Island, and Tahquamenon Falls State Park all make magical winter getaways in Michigan, too!
