School is out, nights are getting longer and temperatures are rising-summer is officially in full swing. Summer days are often referred to as lazy, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It seems there is always something to do or somewhere to be. So how do you make the most of your summer vacation?
Northern Michigan really knows how to celebrate what can often feel like the quickest three months of the year. Weekends are filled with festivals and fireworks, and entertainment can be found on nearly every street corner in every community.
The Great Outdoors
Beach days are synonymous with summer and nowhere can you find freshwater as far as the eye can see and endless stretches of sandy beaches. Spend an afternoon looking for Petoskey Stones or enjoying a good book with the gentle lull of waves in the background.
Explore the great outdoors on foot or two wheels with miles of scenic trails and pathways practically at your doorstep. Or spend a few hours on the links taking advantage of northern Michigan's stellar golf reputation. Paddle out on pristine waters and enjoy the rivers, inland lakes, and Lake Michigan.
While away the morning walking through quaint downtown areas and shopping a unique collection of stores, cafés, restaurants and art galleries.
Sultry nights are the perfect excuse to venture out and experience the newest addition to The Inn at Bay Harbor, Vintage Chophouse l Wine Bar . Relax after a busy day while enjoying frosty beverages and laughter at the Cabana Bar or lingering over a glass of wine while watching the sunset over Little Traverse Bay.
Here's to enjoying summer in style, cheers!
