Fun for the Whole Family

Endless Thrills

Cue the fun, learning, laughter and memories.

If you are traveling with kids, there is no shortage of fun and educational adventures to share in the laughter and memories that will last a lifetime.

Michigan has all the classics—from wooden roller coasters and hand-carved carousels to preserved historical sites and museums built for young imaginations.
Head to one of the many nature centers and recreation areas to explore hands-on exhibits and experience Michigan’s nature up close. Spend a day at one of our aquariums or planetariums, ride a Model T or take flight in a full-motion flight simulator. Here you can explore space, time and Michigan all in one day.

Explore water parks and zoos so thrilling, you’ll want to stay the night and do it all over again. Whether it means throwing your hands up together as you careen down a six-story water slide or watching as your child feeds a giraffe by hand. Each season brings its own delights—from apple orchards and haunted attractions in the fall to ziplining and tubing in the winter. An urban escape or a historic encounter will keep you, and the kids, coming back for more. Ready to cue the fun?
