Northwest Michigan

Sights, Flavors & Adventures

Million-dollar sunsets and picture-perfect views.

Michigan’s northwest region offers a rich blend of adventure, relaxation and breathtaking natural attractions, making it a must for your travel bucket list.

Don’t miss “The Most Beautiful Place in America,” also known as Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore. In addition to epic sand dunes, the park features forested trails, starry skies, historical sites and ancient glacial phenomena. A drive along M-22 will prove though that this is no diamond in the rough—Lake Michigan and the countless inland lakes in the region offer a chance to experience a “Lake Effect" like no other.

The terroir comes to life at more than 30 wineries on the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsula, and tart cherries, apples and more offer tempting tastes for travelers. Visit quaint downtowns with unique, boutique shops and discover endless outdoor adventures, no matter the season. Schedule a tee-time in America’s Summer Golf Capital or head to resorts that cater to adventure seekers and spa-goers alike in northwest Michigan.
