Cabin fever has set in, but relief just around the corner. One way to help the kids break that cabin fever is to take a Northwestern Michigan road trip, where you’ll find several kid-friendly attractions including great water parks, fun museums and one of the nation’s largest candle factories.
A stay at Great Wolf Lodge is a must for families traveling to the area with kids. This full-service, log cabin-style family destination with 281 northwoods-themed rooms features a 38,000 square-foot indoor water park with eight waterslides, five pools, two whirlpools and a 4-story/12-level interactive Tree House Water Fort. The Lodge also offers a therapeutic spa, two casual restaurants, a confectionery and a arcade.
Great Lakes Children’s Museum affords kids an hand-on, interactive experience, in an informal educational environment which fosters the curiosity, exploration, and participation that your kids will love.
Located on the Northwestern Michigan College campus, the Dennos Museum Center features both the visual and performing arts housed in three rotating exhibition galleries, a sculpture court and a "hands-on" Discovery Gallery.
The Candle Factory invites visitors to enjoy its demonstrations and experience the historical and artistic ambiance that entertains guests of all ages.
Don’t be surprised if you hear music echoing through the woods as you’re traveling through the Northwestern community of Interlochen. You’re approaching the 1,200-acre campus of the Interlochen Center for the Arts, where visitors can attend some 750 performances during the year-round Interlochen Arts Festival.
