Michigan In Winter

What are some beautiful places to explore in Michigan in winter?
Winter in Michigan can get cold and snowy, but that isn't always a bad thing. There are some truly amazing areas to explore after you bundle up. Here are some beautiful places to explore in Michigan in winter that we think you'll love:

  • Mackinac Island: Located between Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsula Mackinac Island is a charming oasis with a quaint small-town vibe. In the warmer months, tourists that number ten times the amount of full-time residents arrive to enjoy this lovely village. In the winter, however, the island has a quiet atmosphere that is very intimate and relaxing.
  • Boyne Mountain Resort, Traverse City, MI: This entire ski resort is a beautiful sight in the wintertime. But its crowning glory is the SkyBridge. From November until March, this epic bridge that connects the two mountain peaks in the resort is lit up with thousands of lights. Imagine looking out over the valley as you are surrounded by twinkling lights and the crisp cool Michigan mountain air.
  • Kitch-iti-kipi, Manistee, MI: This freshwater spring in Palms Book State Park is sometimes referred to as the "Mirror of Heaven." In the warmer months, it is a mirror-like pool of fresh water surrounded by lush forest. In the winter the turquoise waters reflect back the snow-covered pine trees like a watercolor painting. It is a truly beautiful place to explore after a fresh snowfall. To find maps for all of the hiking trails in the area, check out AllTrails+
