Visiting Northern Michigan
Throughout northern Michigan’s winter and spring seasons, you’ll find a wealth of things to see and do. Plan your next visit to Michigan and head north – cities like Harbor Springs, Cheboygan, and Escanaba – with their premier attractions and can’t-miss event calendars – will help to make your stay unforgettable.
One of the sites you most certainly cannot miss in northern Michigan is the Mackinac Bridge. This iconic bridge spans the Straits of Mackinac as it unites Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas. Enjoy a pleasant drive across this bridge when you’re heading into Saint Ignace or, even further north, Sault Sainte Marie. Be sure to explore the Headlands International Dark Sky Park this fall for exceptional stargazing.
Harbor Springs will yield plenty of fun for the whole family this fall. On October 14th and 15th you’ll want to visit The Terrace 1549 in nearby Petoskey for the annual Little Traverse Bay Parafest. This is the premier paranormal activity event in northern Michigan.
Enjoy a festival holiday celebration this winter in northern Michigan. Downtown Harbor Springs will host their 101st Annual Harbor Springs Christmas Tree Lighting. Festivities begin at 6:30, with Christmas caroling scheduled for after the main event – bring the whole family and enjoy a holiday celebration in Harbor Springs.
Make plans to explore the Upper Peninsula of northern Michigan this winter. Head for Escanaba to easily make the most of your time. From December 2nd to 4th you can see the live show “Guys on Ice: The New Ice Fishing Musical” at the William Bonifas Fine Arts Center. Performances on the 2nd and 3rd begin at 8 p.m., and the final show, on the 4th, is a 2 p.m. matinee.
Just to the north of Escanaba you’ll find the city of Marquette, home of Northern Michigan University. This fall and into the early winter you’ll have a chance to catch an exciting NMU Wildcats football game. On October 29th you can see the NMU Wildcats take on Hillsdale College at 1 p.m., and their finale home game of 2016 is against Michigan Tech on November 5th at 1 p.m. All NMU home football games are played at Superior Dome.
Make sure you find some time to explore the city of Ludington. More west-centrally located, it’ll yield some excellent fun this winter. Make the short drive south into the village of Pentwater for the annual WinterFest. Held during each weekend in February, WinterFest features Broomball tournaments, Hot Jazz concerts, and fishing contests.
