#14 Take a different kind of tour of Michigan – on a Hot Air Balloon!
Location: All over Michigan!
All over Michigan, Balloon rides are offered in the summer. We recommend snagged the coveted sunset or sunrise spot for maximum viewing pleasure. Not feeling great about going that high up in the air? Head to the Balloonfest in Howell and take in their beauty!
Our writer Shalee recently took a Hot Air Balloon ride instead of walking at her college graduation – read her account here.
The Silver Beach Carousel in St. Joseph is one of a kind! This year-round attraction features horses, tigers, a hippopotamus, a panda, and a clown fish, all beautifully hand-carved and hand-painted by the artisans at The Carousel Works. Around the top of the carousel you can learn about the local history – told as no one else in the world has told it on a carousel – using historic photographs!
