Northwest Michigan

Home to countless lakes, epic sand dunes, historic towns and villages, Northwest Michigan offers a rich blend of adventure and relaxation. The area's stunning natural sites draw crowds of adventure seekers, who come to hike, swim, sail, or snowshoe regardless of the season. The wealth of outdoor attractions stands side by side with museums, theaters, wineries, and boutique shops. Dubbed "Cherry Capital of the World," Traverse City remains the regional transport hub. Nestled in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Empire serves as base for exploring the famous sand dunes and soaring bluffs. When using our United States trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
