Michigan travelers choose from 33 Best Western hotels.
A winter visit into Michigan calls for stay in the Detroit area – escape the teeth-chattering chill with warm attractions like Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Fisher Theatre. Then rip up the slopes in northern Michigan at Boyne Mountain – home to 111 trails for skiers and snowboarders alike; there really is a wealth of outdoor activity in Michigan.
Head further north into the Upper Peninsula and shred Big Powderhorn Mountain's 17 feet of average annual snow – perfect for the novice, or the advanced. Just outside of Grand Rapids, try Bittersweet Ski Area, featuring 20 different runs, and warm yourself up with a flavorful brew at the Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. Any visit to Grand Rapids should also yield a tour of the Gerald R. Ford Museum.
For some snowshoeing, you'll find plenty of choice trails in northern Michigan. Near Traverse City, be sure to explore Sand Lakes Quiet Area Trails, or Camp Hayo-Went-Ha Trails, nearly 17 miles of pristine snowshoe trails.
In Detroit, winter for sports fans means Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons games. Visit Joe Louis Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings, or check out the Palace of Auburn Hills for an exciting Detroit Pistons basketball game. Both the NBA and NHL seasons are just beginning to heat up in the winter. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions are likely just finishing another climactic NFL regular season – catch the exciting action at Ford Field.
