Located on the western shores of Lake Michigan, Muskegon offers year-round activities. With 46 attractions, 31 beaches and parks, 13 museums, and 24 indoor recreational facilities, there’s always something to do, no matter the temperature. Walk 26 miles of sandy beach bordering Lake Michigan or hike more than 60 miles of trails. Take the plunge on Shivering Timbers, a 125-foot-tall wooden roller coaster at Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and Water Park. Race down the 850-foot luge track at Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park before skiing, snow-shoeing, or ice-skating along the shores of Lake Michigan. Tour Muskegon Lake aboard the Aquastar, or visit one of several maritime attractions, including the S.S. Milwaukee Clipper, a steamship and historic national landmark. If indoor shopping is more your style, check out downtown Muskegon’s Century Club, a venue packed with retailers and wine tastings. End the day gazing at the stars and learning about the solar system at Carr-Fles Planetarium, and then grab a bite to eat while enjoying sunset views at one of many beach and waterfront dining establishments. Less than an hour away in Grand Rapids, the Gerald R. Ford International Airport offers flights to many non-stop destinations.
