Every year we get a break called “spring break,” which is a couple of months before summer break. This year, we will have March 31-April 7 off from school! Spring break is a time to go out and get a break from school for one week! However, you might feel like the only person with nowhere to go. You don’t want to just sit at home, right? Well, we have researched some of our favorite places to visit in Michigan to help get you off your couch. Put down your phone, get out of your house, and go have some fun! 

  1. Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island is a beautiful place with plenty of sights and things to do! “It was really fun there!” says 7th grader Abigail Gibeau. You can go there for about $95-$250 a night depending on where you stay. To get there, it is about a 7-8 hour car ride and about a 20-minute boat ride.

  1. Grand Haven

Grand Haven is mostly known for being on the coast of Lake Michigan and a musical fountain. There are bus tours, festivals, and much more. To stay in Grand Haven for one night is about $60-$140 depending on where you stay. Grand Haven is about a 3-hour drive from Plymouth.

Frankenmuth is a fun-filled place with lots of indoor water parks, riverboat cruises, ziplines, and more. You can stay there for about $72-$250 a night depending on where you stay. This is just an hour and a half drive from your hometown, DTP!

4. Traverse City

Finally, Traverse City (TC). TC is full of amusement parks, zoos, aquariums, and farms for a day full of fun. Cost for spending the night can range from $40-$132 depending on where you stay. TC is a five-hour drive from Plymouth. However, we think it is worth the car ride to stay right next to Lake Michigan.
