Things to do in Michigan in Winter
Ice Golfing. Yes, ice golfing is a thing here in Michigan and boy is it fun! Several golf courses throughout the state offer ice golfing using brightly colored golf balls over frozen lakes and ponds.
Skiing. I know it is probably a given, but there are endless opportunities for skiing in Michigan. We have the second highest number of ski resorts, behind New York. With an abundance of snow throughout much of the northern part of the state, there are many opportunities for alpine skiing as well as cross country.
Sledding. Break out those old sleds and inner tubes and take the kids sledding! This remains a family favorite Wintertime activity.
Frozen Waterfalls. Michigan is one of the best places to visit frozen waterfalls. If you have never experienced this stunning phenomenon, you need to do it ASAP! The waterfall has literally frozen in time. You might even get lucky and see some ice climbers tackling the waterfalls in their frozen glory.
Winter Blast in Detroit. If you are near Detroit in February, you must visit Campus Martius which is turned into a stunning winter Wonderland, featuring sledding, ice skating, live music and other entertainment and lots more fun winter activities.
Snowmobiling racing. Snowmobile racing is fun, wild and exciting and living in, or visiting Michigan provides you with the perfect opportunity to watch some fun races.
Dog Sledding. Yes, you can go dogsledding! If you have always wanted to try it out, you are in luck. There are several places in Northern Michigan that allow customers to experience dog sledding in all its glory.
Fat Tire Biking. Don’t worry, the mountain bike trails don’t go away once the snow flies, you just need to get a different kind of bike. Fat tire bikes can get you over the snow-covered trails easier. Or, if you don’t want to do the biking yourself, you can even watch some fat tire bike racing, which is quite exciting.
