Once a thriving logging community, Boyne Falls is a postcard-perfect village nestled along Lake Charlevoix in the wooded splendor of northern Michigan. It's also home to Michigan's largest indoor waterpark, two championship golf courses, and also happens to be the Midwest’s largest ski area at Boyne Mountain, with direct access to 14 ski lifts and 60 downhill ski runs for all skill levels. Even if you're not a skier, you've got to try the snowtubing here–so much fun! Of course, this all-year destination offers plenty of warm-weather activities too, from golf and hiking to biking, boating and fishing in and around nearby beaches, lakes, rivers and parks. Stop by Petoskey State Park for a visit and be sure to pick up a fossilized Petoskey stone, Michigan's state stone.
Relax with an afternoon of shopping at local boutiques, then order a gourmet meal or have a drink at City Park Grill where Ernest Hemingway was once a regular. Or spend a day exploring beautiful nearby Macinac Island by horse and carriage. Whatever season you travel, you’re in for an unforgettable vacation.
Tee up rounds of golf on the Alpine & Monument courses—both offer challenging and unforgettable championship experiences. Ski and snowboard, then relax and unwind at Solace Spa.
Avalanche Bay™ Indoor Waterpark
Soak up fun at the largest waterpark in Michigan. This family-friendly fun spot features 88,000 square feet of aquatic adventures including slides, rides and a surf simulator. You’ll also find a multi-level arcade with more than 100 games.
Step back in time to a destination where residents still travel by horse, carriage or on foot. Marvel at graceful Victorian mansions or gaze off into the harbor. Be sure to sample the homemade fudge–it helped give the island its sweet reputation.
