With its breathtaking views and area museums and historic sites, the St. Ignace area is great way to start off an adventure in the Upper Peninsula.

Located just beyond the Mackinac Bridge, St. Ignace and surrounding communities offer signature Michigan experiences like the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point Lighthouse in Paradise.

Grand Traverse Bay area:

Traverse city skiing

The Grand Traverse Bay area is a favorite spot for day trippers and those looking for more extended stays.

During the winter, you can enjoy the more than 200 miles of some of the finest and most diverse ski and snowmobiling trails in the nation. In the summer, visitors can work on their tan while stretched out on beautiful beach sand or go for a dip in the crisp blue waters of Lake Michigan.

The area is also home to resorts and spas, as well as beautiful parks, museums and entertainment venues for a wide array of activities and attractions.

Great Lakes Bay region:


The Great Lakes Bay region in Michigan is home to several communities with diverse experiences that the entire family can enjoy during and after the holiday season.

From Bay City’s antique shops and views of the Saginaw River to beautiful and picturesque Dow Gardens in Midland, there is no shortage of sites to see and activities to do.

The Frankenmuth area is a particular favorite during the holiday season. Go shopping at Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland or get splashed at Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel & Indoor Water Park, a 30,000 square foot indoor waterpark.
