Beautiful Whitmore Lake is a 600 acre 'all sports' lake: water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, will keep everyone happy and having fun! Bring your boat and dock it at your own semi- private dock, or rent a boat from Mac's Marina on Whitmore Lake. Great 4th of July celebrations: boat parade, street parade,'splash and dash' biathlon, water ski show, and fire works you can enjoy from the comfort of your own dock! Cultural events in Ann Arbor include;'Top of the Park', 'German Park', University of Michigan Theatre and Musicals, Ann Arbor art fair, are just a few of the activities available. The 'Big House' U of M's football stadium, is located 12 mile from the house. LOTS of wonderful restaurants and bars in Ann Arbor. Michigan Pond Hockey Tournament in February includes bands, beer tent, and lots of hockey! You can walk on the lake, from the house, to the activities. There is never a lack of things to do in this wonderful area!
