Travel to Michigan / Michigan Vacation Rentals

Michigan is home to Midwest friendliness with many great vacation destinations and Michigan vacation rentals to go with it! Find your fancy on land or water, and then reserve a Michigan vacation rental nearby for ultimate comfort.

Michigan Great Lakes

Tourism breeds from the waters surrounding Michigan. Michigan is graced with borders on four of the five Great Lakes: Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Lake Erie and Lake Superior, ensuring that all Michigan vacation home rentals have great views. Naturally occurring fauna around the lakes include white-tailed deer, fox, beaver, bobcat, and moose. The fishing possibilities are extraordinary, and the boating and yachting is premier. Water sports are endless, and the sand beaches offer solace.

Michigan Vacation Spots

Northwest Michigan has many vacation opportunities. Beautiful Petosky is a longtime resort area, and has architecture from other periods. Filled with summer activities is Traverse City, celebrating their cherry production, yachting, beaches, scenic golfing, and fishing. Manistee boasts of the best natural producing rainbow trout in the world. Cadillac, a non-coastal area, has a real small town feel and harbors the active lifestyle as well as attractions like the Shay Steam Locomotive, situated in City Park.

West Central Michigan includes Muskegon and Grand Rapids. 27 miles of sandy beach line the coast of Muskegon, and thoroughbred racing is popular here. The area is known for lumbering, and restored Victorian homes here have been featured on national TV. Grand Rapids is the second largest city in Michigan, and has numerous opportunities for nightlife, and entertainment. If you're hoping to mix and mingle and explore the excitement around you, Central Michigan condos are your best bet. Central Michigan's heritage is preserved by Dutch Village, recreating a Dutch town with live demonstrations and specialty shops.

Southwest Michigan is a mix of resorts and agriculture history, for starters. Benton Harbor celebrates its non-citrus fruit production with the Blossomtime Festival, and offers hiking trails to natural springs. St. Joseph, a sister area to Benton Harbor, sells lighthouse collectibles as part of its unique shopping, and its Silver Beach is nationally acclaimed. The Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek is excellent, and many tourists enjoy the Kellogg’s Cereal City USA throughout the year.

Northeast Michigan includes Mackinac Island and Houghton Lake. Mackinac Island is a perennial destination, whether your taste is for yachting in the summer, or skiing in the winter. No cars drive on the roadways in this Victorian-style area; walking, bicycling, and horse/buggy are acceptable. Houghton Lake is the largest inland lake of Michigan. From sedentary to aerobic, activities can include canoeing, kayaking, or just lying down on the grass alongside the lake. Outdoor enthusiasts will definitely find the Michigan vacation home rentals here appealing.

East Central Michigan features locations like Bay City, Port Huron, and Flint. Bay City houses many modern pubs, restaurants, and shops in 19th century structures, and don’t miss the tall ships in Saginaw River. Port Huron teems with fish and family fun for every season; seek out the cider mills in the fall, and festivals in the summer. Flint, the originating city of General Motors, commemorates this fact in the Buick Research Gallery; more transportation is via the Huckleberry Railroad in Crossroads Village. Waterfront Michigan cottages and homes are a favorite!

Southeast Michigan has more city appeal in Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Detroit. Lansing advertises that enjoying metropolitan pleasures there doesn’t hurt the wallet quite as much; one of the many attractions is a riverboat cruise on the “Michigan Princess.” Visit the Gerald R. Ford Library in Ann Arbor. In Detroit, the birthplace of Motown music and the lesser-known pioneer of techno, enjoy a variety of music at clubs and stadiums in the area, and taste more history at the historic manor, the Cranbrook House.

The Upper Peninsula has vast beauty and history that makes it a special area. Sault Ste. Marie is the oldest city in the Midwest U.S. and site of much cultural diversity and its Soo Locks waterway gets the most industrial usage in the world. Peer at the Marquette Lighthouse and the iron ore docks in Marquette. In the U.P. region, Isle Royale is only reached by boat or plane and has pristine waters, the North Woods Forest, and its wildlife includes wolves and moose; it plays a role as a living laboratory, and is unspoiled.

From Michigan cottages to condos to villas, it's all right here. What excuse do you have to not visit Michigan? Affordable, spacious, and luxurious Michigan condos and homes are easily within reach; find your ideal Michigan vacation rental today!
