Recreation area offers downhill and cross-country skiing, 246 acres on 43 slopes and runs up to almost a mile in length.

Reviewed By j w - Ann Arbor

This is my favorite place to ski in Michigan. The chairs are a bit dated, but this place knows skiing as much as any place anywhere. The lift operators are mostly friendly which is sometimes hard to find, and the ski shop is outstanding. I love Nubs Nob. I've gone twice in the past 2 years, and had so much fun on my skis. It ALMOST makes you think it's a waste to go out West. A high speed lift at this place could get so many runs in!

The Spa at the Inn at Bay Harbor

Reviewed By ProMich - Traverse City, Michigan

It's been a dozen years since I've visited this particular spa and it is just as good as I remember it. I made a last-minute decision to call and was able to get to back-to-back appointments within an hour of making that call. I always like to try the seasonal treatment and this time it was bubbles and berries exfoliation which I loved. I followed that with a massage which got all the knots out of my upper back, neck and shoulders. In all a great afternoon. Now I can kick off my weekend!

Little Traverse Wheelway

Reviewed By Lisa S - Detroit, Michigan

I love this bike path. It follows along Little Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan and you often have great water views. In Petoskey there are convenient parks and opportunities to refill water bottles or picnic. I have biked it from Charlevoix to Petoskey downtown, past Bay View, and to the Petoskey State Park, where there is a great beach to walk. Nice biking. Some hills.

The Oden State Fish Hatchery

Reviewed By Shinjin7 - Harbor Springs, Michigan

The train outside the facility looks weathered but inside is air conditioning and much historical information. The information building also has a lot of learning items for children and adults alike. The underground viewing area is great. What child doesn't like feeding the fish / ducks?

Riverwalk Pier

Reviewed By karjer21 - Newnan, Georgia

TheRIverwalk starting from Wenonah Park and going down river as the Bay City Loop until it meets the Bangor Trail. This walkway is well lit, well kept and unfortunately also well like by all the ducks and geese that frequent the Saginaw River, walkers and runners beware of their droppings. This walk is truly a wonderful walk along the river and under a working bascule-type drawbridge. It is also great to sit on the convenient benches and watch Great Lake freighters, the Princess Wenonah and other large vessels transit up the Saginaw Rivers. The Riverwalk trail is used by all ages for hiking, running, jogging, bike riding and just strolling in general. A great place to watch the sunset or for those more hardy sunrise.

Pond Hill Farm

Reviewed By MontanaCraig - Big Sky, Montana

We were there in October, about a week before the peak of Autumn colors. This is a picturesque working farm near the shores of Lake Michigan. They have a nice winery, a brewery with knowledgeable staff, and a good restaurant with fresh ingredients. The pumpkin patch was awesome and a big hit with the kids. There are lots of family friendly activities and you don't have to spend a lot.

Historic Gaslight District

Reviewed By Pomerols - Weston, Florida

I just spend 5 days in San Diego and I went almost everyday to the Gaslight District. The area is great in the evening. It is full of life and lights with a lot of restaurants and bars. During the day, while the area still has a lot of restaurants, I found the shopping minimal, mostly tourist stores and a few galleries and clothes shops. A lot of homeless people...

Plumber's Helper Charter Service

Join Captains Jim and Kim Musselman aboard their comfortable and roomy Tiara 4300 Open sport-fishing yacht for a fun and memorable fishing trip on Northern Lake Michigan. This is charter fishing at its best, with over 30 years' experience. "If you don't catch fish, you don't pay!"

Reviewed By Brianjazar - East Lansing, Michigan

This charter service is run by a husband and wife team who live on the boat you will fish from. I arranged my charter for two people via email, and Kim was very responsive and detailed in her messages. A deposit is required to book...MoreThanks so much for your great, thorough review! We're happy we were able to exceed your expectations.

Petoskey State Park

Reviewed By seecrane - East Lansing, Michigan

We camped here for three nights in mid-September, at the Tannery Creek campground. I'd always camped at the Dunes campground before, but it was closed for the season. Still close to the beach. The campground was very uncrowded while we were there. Good thing, because we'd reserved a site online and the previous occupants hadn't bothered to vacate it. Thankfully the site next door was available. Nicely maintained park. Helpful staff. Can't speak for restrooms; didn't use the ones at the campground. Really nice beach: wide and sandy at the day use area, more wild and secluded near the campgrounds. Great rock hunting.

Thorne Swift Nature Preserve

Reviewed By ohiowanderer - Columbus OH

We drove out here to use the beach. The beach was rather rocky and not what we expected, but we enjoyed the small nature center, and the trails down to the beach. At $5 a car, it was worth it.
