If you’re looking for Michigan summer outdoor adventures, you’ll find plenty to do—explore, kayak, hike, bike, golf, and wander.
While the list of Michigan summer activities can seem endless, you can use these ten ideas to create your personalized Michigan summer bucket list.
South Manitou Island is the perfect Michigan summer day trip, as the only overnight accommodations on the island are campgrounds.
A sea kayak is required to kayak in Lake Superior, not a recreational kayak, under 14 feet long. Do not use canoes in open water like Lake Superior.
SUP is a low-impact activity, with tours suitable for children 12 and older.
More than 500 horses summer on the island. Travel includes horse-drawn carriage, horseback, bicycles, or walking.
Spray Falls is the most remote waterfall on Pictured Rocks National Shoreline, where the Lakeshore Trail leads to the top of the falls.
If you have kiddos, be sure to take in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden, the most extensive children’s garden in the United States.
