Find the Perfect Michigan Getaway for Summer


Are you looking into which Michigan vacation destinations would be perfect for you and your family this summer? Don’t fret and don’t sweat! We’ve got you covered with some of these amazing places and activities you can do to have the most fun under the sun!

Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids has a little bit of something for everyone regardless of age. Whether spending time with animals at the zoo or going on a hike, you can be sure everyone will have a great time.

Visit the John Ball Zoo and experience memorable encounters–safely and from a distance–with various animals like lions, tigers, chimpanzees, and even frogs. If you want to go somewhere more adventurous, Millennium Park offers great views and fresh air outdoors on the many hiking trails or on a boat on the lake.

Michigan’s Adventure

If you want to be spoiled for entertainment choices, you must drop by the largest amusement park in the whole of Michigan. Michigan’s Adventure boasts as many as 52 rides inside, so you can have your fill of exciting rides and games.

You can have a fun, relaxing time at the petting zoo, or you can get aboard the Shivering Timbers, the longest and fastest wooden roller coaster in all of Michigan! Whichever adventure you choose, it’s bound to be a whole lot of fun!

Rockport State Park

The Rockport State Recreation in Rogers City is Michigan's 100th recognized state park. It’s perfect for outdoor activities like hiking and boating in the lake, but what sets it apart is that it’s also well-known for fossils.

You can have a fun and educational day out in Rockport State Park, just make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, wear solid, comfortable walking shoes, and keep bug spray handy as you go out and about.


Looking to satisfy your urban cravings instead? Then head over to Detroit. This city is as major as it can get, with plenty of dining and shopping options that will complete your vacation. Otherwise known as the “Motor City,” you can also get a glimpse of a slice of American automotive history at The Henry Ford Museum.


Can’t quite choose between city and nature? No problem, Kalamazoo’s got you covered. It’s a city, but it also has various trails perfect for hikes and bikes. You can also check out the Kalamazoo Nature Center if you’d like to do more educational activities with your little ones.

Of course, these are only a few examples of all the fun things you can consider in Michigan when planning a summer vacation. Get those plans set and laid out so you can get going to the fun part! Call or visit OUR Credit Union to learn how they can help you finance your summer vacation!
