Michigan Winter Bucket List

MT. PLEASANT, Mich.,–– Winter in Michigan can be a particularly dreary, dark, and cold time of year, making you all the more likely to just curl up under a blanket at home and wait for spring to arrive. But you'd be missing out! There is so much to do during the winter in Michigan including the many events and festivals that are held this time of year to various outdoor activities you can enjoy such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, ice fishing, and more! So while we can't blame you for wanting to just sit winter out this year, we encourage you to use our Michigan Winter Bucket List to make the season a lot more fun and perhaps go more quickly!
