What can my child do this summer that is fun and educational?

May 15, 2018

A shoreline dotted with maritime museums and more than 129 picturesque lighthouses. A car-less island where historic sites recall Colonial America. Michigan has activities to keep families entertained, from speedways to roller coasters, water parks to zoos and aquariums.


You could take it slow along the Great Lakes shoreline, particularly if you want to check a good number of our lighthouses off your list—you can encounter more here than any other state, depending on how long you plan to wander. Along the way, maritime museums and centuries-old forts beckon—you might even chance upon soldiers drilling and firing cannons in a re-enactment at Colonial-era Fort Mackinac.


Maybe you want to rev things up. In the MotorCities National Heritage Area, you can tour The Henry Ford Museum and GM World before catching the blur of a race at Michigan International Speedway. 


For more things to do in Michigan cities, guided tours can acquaint you with historic sites, city sights and unforgettable tastes. Try a culinary or brewery tour, or a wine tasting tour. Visit a farm or orchard to sample Michigan’s freshest offerings, including tart, sweet cider. For a Michigan adventure that’s full of family fun, load your itinerary with amusement parks.


So . . . what will you do in Michigan today? For details on these and additional ideas, visit the Pure Michigan website.
