Visiting Central Michigan
There’s just about no end to the amount of fun you’ll have exploring central Michigan this fall and winter. Whether it be the exceptional attractions and charming cities, or the welcoming locals and impressive schedule of events and festivals, central Michigan is sure to entertain throughout the winter and into early 2017.
Any visit to central Michigan should include a stay in Grand Rapids. Only minutes inland from Lake Michigan, and easily accessed from Interstate 96 and Interstate 196, Grand Rapids is a premier city in the region. Along with some must-see attractions like the Gerald R. Ford Museum, and the John Ball Zoo, you can also partake in any of the local festivals and events.
On December 2nd be sure to check out the 2016 Grand Rapids Heart Ball. Now in its 20th year, the Grand Rapids Heart Ball will be held at the DeVos Place, and it will be celebrating those in the area who have worked towards curing cardiovascular disease and stroke. You can make the short drive in from nearby Wyoming or Holland.
From December 27th to 30th, the DeVos Performance Hall will host live performances of A Christmas Story: The Musical. On Wednesday, December 28th, there will be two performances – 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., otherwise each show begins at 7:30 p.m.
For fans of cold brews, the 12th Annual Winter Beer Festival is a can’t-miss. Make your way to the West Michigan Whitecaps Baseball Park on February 24th and 25th for a chance to sample craft beer from more than 100 Michigan Breweries. The West Michigan Whitecaps Baseball Park is found in Comstock Park, just to the north Grand Rapids.
Make sure you venture into Flint this fall or winter and check out a very exciting hockey game. Visit the Dort Federal Credit Union Center, home ice of the Flint Firebirds. The Firebirds play in the Ontario Hockey League, and this is their second year in existence. On March 11th the Firebirds will host the Kitchener Rangers starting at 7 p.m.
