Michigan gets awfully cold during winter, so it’s no surprise he headed for warmer weather! Michiganders are a hearty bunch though, so there’s no shortage of activities for you to do. Here are the best winter things to do in Michigan:
  • Go skiing. Admittedly, Michigan isn’t going to have the skiing you’ll find out West or in the Northeast, but if you’re an intermediate or novice, it should offer enough of a challenge at one of the state’s 40 ski resorts.
  • Visit the U.S. National Ski Hall of Fame. Located in Ishpeming, this hall of fame should give you a bit of motivation to hit the slopes.
  • Go ice skating. If you want to strap on some skates, Michigan has plenty of places to skate in winter. Choose from an indoor or outdoor rink, although the outdoor option provides a unique Michigan experience.
Since you’re taking a long drive from Kentucky to Michigan, you may want to consider towing and labor coverage. This optional coverage provides roadside assistance should you need it on your trip. The best place to find great rates is with the Jerry app.
