What to Do in Michigan This Winter

As one of America’s northernmost states, Michigan becomes a winter wonderland each year. This presents visitors and residents with opportunities to undertake several activities to give them some magical Michigan memories. For those who are not great outdoors enthusiasts, the state offers a host of other attractions for them to try.

Here are some examples of things you should do in Michigan during winter:

Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park

Fans of the Winter Olympics know that luge is a high-speed exhilarating activity. By visiting Muskegon’s luge track, you can take some free lessons, get the necessary equipment and try your hand at gliding across the ice at speeds of up to 30mph. This luge track is one of only four across the United States, making it a unique opportunity to try something unusual. After a tough day of luging, curl up in front of a crackling fire and gamble at a Michigan online casino. The state is one of only a handful that allows legal online gambling, an ideal way to unwind and enjoy some entertainment.

Visit Gun Lake Casino

If you prefer gambling at a land-based casino, visit the Gun Lake Casino, a tribal casino operated by the Band of Pottawatomi Indians. Experience a world of gambling fun with plenty of dining options to suit every palate. The breathtaking views on your drive to Gun Lake Casino should not be missed out on either. The Michigan winter landscape is truly magnificent.

Dog sledding

Take your kids for a dog sledding adventure at one of several locations, including Husky Haven Kennels in Shingleton, Natures Kennel in McMillan, Treetops Resort in Gayland, or Schuss Mountain Resort in Bellaire. Friendly Siberian Huskies will take them on the ride of their lives, a truly memorable experience. When considering your online flight booking, look at hiring a car to get you to one of these locations.

NFL Football fans might want to tick a football game at Michigan Stadium off their Michigan bucket list. The stadium is America’s largest, with a seating capacity of over 100,000. It is the home ground for the University of Michigan’s college football team and is known as ‘The Big House’. Other sports hosted at this Ann Arbor facility include ice hockey and soccer. Now that sports games are becoming public after the pandemic, a visit to such a revered stadium should feature on your Michigan winter itinerary.
