The five Great Lakes were created after the Ice Age. Each lake holds at least one adventure. And those adventures are perfect for families of all sizes. Besides enjoying the water at the Great Lakes, your family can check out glacial rock formations and nearby towns. Although, I think you will want to spend most of your time in the water searching for underwater treasures. Today, I am going to share the Great Lakes vacations that are perfect for families like yours. Your family may not want to tackle all these Great Lakes vacations. But one or two should make your future family vacation list.
A vacation near Lake Superior should be spent exploring the numerous shipwrecks located inside this freshwater lake. One of the most famous shipwrecks in this lake is The Bermuda. That ship was a schooner, and it sunk in 1870.
I can easily arrange for your family to take one of the many shipwreck scuba diving tours. Those tours leave from the town of Munising, Michigan. If you don’t want to go diving, I recommend a glass-bottom boat tour.
One of the best places to go hiking on a Great Lakes vacation is Indiana Dunes National Park. There are fifty miles of trails throughout this national park. Your family will love hiking along the sand dunes. Although, any trail is worthy of the steps you take.
Leland is a charming town in Michigan. You will find the town between the banks of Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan. Leland is one of the best places to sit back and relax. Although, you will want to head towards the lake promenade to sample the freshly smoked fish.
The cliffs surrounding Lake Superior are massive. One of the best ways to see those cliffs, and other unique rock formations, is by heading out on the water in a kayak. I can book a kayaking tour for your family. These tours go between Little Beaver Lake and Sand Point, which is a distance of fifteen miles.
Isle Royale National Park is comprised of one large island and four hundred smaller islands. The only way your family can reach this park is by boat or seaplane. There is a ton of wildlife within this national park.
If you are looking for a place to get away from it all with your family, so you can make those memories that matter, Isle Royale National Park should be at the top of your list.
Lake Erie seems to be the Great Lake that has it all. During your Great Lakes vacation, you can spend time on remote beaches and in charming towns. You may feel as if you have stepped back in time as you explore the area.
However, your favorite part about staying in this area will be the opportunity to have fun at Cedar Point Amusement Park. And if you can tear your kids away from there, you can all go parasailing, wakeboarding, and kiteboarding out on the lake.
Some of the best waterfalls in Minnesota can be found within Gooseberry Falls National Park. Your family can follow almost any of the trails to reach those waterfalls. Take a picnic lunch with you so you can linger at your favorite waterfall a little longer.
When you leave this park, head over to Split Rock Lighthouse. The views from the shoreline there are stunning.
Apostle Islands National Park is comprised of twenty-one islands within Lake Superior. Head out in a kayak to explore the sea caves and view the cliffs from a different vantage point.
Your family can also head out on the trails. Just keep an eye open for the black bears that live on the islands.
These are the Great Lakes vacations that are perfect for families. Your family should love going on one of these Great Lakes vacations for your next family trip. Talk to your family and see which one interests everyone the most. Once you have your favorite, I can start personalizing your family vacation itinerary.
