Yeah, traffic may be backed up because of those drivers who are freaked out by ice and snow, the temperatures are so low you simply can’t put on enough clothing, and school has been called off yet again. Why not forget about all that and actually enjoy this fabulous winter? This is pretty easy to do if you head to Michigan to check out three equally marvelous resorts, all of which provide enough winter sports fun to make you think that winter might turn out to be your favorite season after all.
The Grand Traverse Resort in Acme, Michigan, located near Traverse City, boasts an incredible, soaring, 17-story glass tower of luxury hotel rooms with an amazing view of the surrounding, snow-covered fields, in addition to the Shores Condominiums overlooking East Grand Traverse Bay. There’s plenty to do at the resort and the surrounding area includes lots of microbreweries and wineries but our favorite activity was dog sledding. Second Chance Mushers is a Siberian husky and Alaskan malamute rescue group which tries to rescue and foster as many dogs as possible. The dogs are also used as sled dogs and they seem to absolutely love it. Every single one was frantic with excitement and couldn’t wait to pull our dog sled around in the snow covering the expansive golf course at the resort. After a day in the snow, we were ready for dinner at the gourmet restaurant, Aerie, which is located on the 16th floor of the tower. Surrounded by large windows, the restaurant has the best view in the entire resort. You may forget all about the view when you try the incredible food. Locally sourced as much as possible and garnished with an international flair, it was one of the best meals we had on our winter getaway.
