Things to do

Ships and stars in the Sleeping Bear Dunes

There's a clutch of top museums right on the doorstep for those who've bagged their Sleeping Bear Dunes vacation rentals in Glen Haven. Check out the Cannery Boathouse, preserved in glowing red and hiding reclaimed skiffs from decades gone by. Then hit the Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station Maritime Museum, a timber-framed building where stories of the national park itself are told. Something more celestial awaits at the Lanphier Observatory, meanwhile, which has huge telescopes to reveal the stars above Leelanau.


Exploring the Sleeping Bear Dunes

This is backcountry that was made to be explored. Dust down the walking boots and hit the trails. They wiggle between the blustery dunes, and even shoot up and down the colossal sand mountains right by the coast. During the adventure, you'll pass campgrounds and historic port towns where guided tours are a must. And nearby there's plenty more, from stargazing observatories to summertime drama shows that take place by campfires on the Michigan beaches. It's magical for the whole family.


Hold out for the summer in Sleeping Bear Dunes

It's true that the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore looks downright otherworldly during the winter, when ice tops the coastal boulders and drifts of snow creak on Lake Michigan. However, it's also cold then, which means most visitors will hold out until the warmer months between spring and summer. They start with May and continue on until September, and offer temperatures that are regularly between the 50s and 70s – perfect for hiking the dunes and seeing the historic port towns.

Natural features

Sleeping Bear Dunes tumble into Lake Michigan

Because this whole place is a protected reserve, you'll need to stay in one of the Sleeping Bear Dunes vacation rentals that dot nearby towns like Glen Arbor or Empire. From them, you can hike out over the hills and tussocks to see the point where the great sand hills tumble down to meet the waters of Lake Michigan. It's a dramatic place to watch the sunset over the Great Lakes, and it's filled with rare piping plovers and trumpeter swans. Amidst the pockets of coastal woodland there, you could also spot black bears, foxes, deer, and bats.
