Go Great Lakes Bay

Great Lakes Bay Region

Follow your winter wanderlust, right here to the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Four stories high in a frozen forest on the country’s longest canopy walk, or deep in fresh powder with nothing but the soft crunch of snow under skis, snowshoes, or fat tires. Onto iced-over waters full of trophy walleye, and winter-white trails begging you to leave fresh tracks.


Sip coffee (or cocktails) in your own heated outdoor igloo, nestle in by the fire at the coziest B&Bs you can find, or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through one of the "28 Most Magical Christmas Towns and Villages Across the World." Wherever winter adventure finds you, it's all Pure Michigan here.
