Things to do

Glen Arbor - putting the "great" in Great Lakes

While a visit to Glen Arbor is a water enthusiast's dream, it doesn't have to involve getting soggy all the time. The neighboring historic village, Glen Haven, offers a step back in time. Harking back to the day when the lakeside villages provided fuel to the steamers which passed through, it's now one of the best preserved logging stations in the Great Lakes region. Visit the general store and pick up some cutesy kitchenware, toys, and food. Peek inside a 1920s blacksmith's shop and the Cannery Boathouse Museum, home to a haul of restored fishing boats.


There are a lotta lakes to love in Glen Arbor

The buttery sandy beaches overlooking Sleeping Bears Bay are a true highlight of any stay in Glen Arbor, and perfect for a teddy bear's picnic. Water enthusiasts will love the choice of 2 lakes - for swimming and boat excursions choose the expanse of Lake Michigan, while Glen Lake is ideal for a spot of fishing. If fishing doesn't float your boat, why not potter around the quirky gift shops in the village center. Grab an artisan coffee and freshly baked cakes at a local coffee shop, or dine out in one of the many family-run restaurants.


It's all seasons greetings from Glen Arbor

Lake Michigan and the Glen Lakes are year-round destinations. In summer, the temperatures peak and the sun shines, drawing the active outdoor crowd. But beware, the sun is a fairweather friend. Winter brings a dusting of snow, and more damp days than dry. The best (and busiest) time to visit Glen Arbor is during the warm summer months, when temperatures can reach 80 degrees. However, spring and early fall are delightful times to stay and there's more choice of Glen Arbor vacation rentals, but rain can make an appearance, so bring your waterproofs.

Natural features

Nature's dunes and sleeping bears

It's famous as the home of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, which sits at the southern end of the village. Named after an Ojibwe legend, the dunes sweep for 35 miles along the eastern coast of Lake Michigan.
