A Prime Vacation Destination (Right in Your Backyard!)

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Itching to get away from the stress of life without adding the turmoil of long drives, plane rides and maybe even time zone changes that come with travel? Consider a short escape to the lakeshore: Muskegon County will make it worth your while with its 2017 Visitors Guide and Coupon Book.

Muskegon County's beaches, festivals, attractions and events make the area a prime travel destination. The USS Silversides Submarine Museum offers a tour of a World War II submarine, the Muskegon Museum of Art offers a wide range of traditional and contemporary pieces, and Michigan's Adventure Amusement & Water Park—the state's largest amusement and water park—is located in Whitehall. ("Two parks for the price of one!")

For the winter months, the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex offers a host of activities to enjoy winter, including a luge track designed by three-time Olympian Frank Masley.

Spend a day cruising, boating or fishing on Lake Michigan, or enjoy sunbathing and splashing along the shoreline. West Michigan is actually a rad Midwest surfing destination. Try wakeboarding or boogie boarding, at the very least.

A little more inland, parks offer great trails, both rustic and paved, for hiking and biking through rolling hills, marshes, lakes and forest.

Stay in one of the area's hotels or cottages, or find a camping ground to enjoy the great outdoors.

Muskegon County is a great destination for your next vacation, meeting or event—and both the Visitors Guide and Coupon Book provide all the information you need to know, along with great deals on many of the county's attractions, restaurants, golf courses and retailers. Complimentary copies of the publications are available from the Muskegon County Convention & Visitors Bureau. Order online at www.visitmuskegon.org, by calling 800.250.9283 or by e-mailing [email protected].

Sometimes, the best vacations are right in your backyard!
