West Coast Michigan Trip Planner
Welcome to West Coast Michigan!
Michigan's West Coast follows the shore of Lake Michigan, one of the Great Lakes, providing visitors with numerous beaches, bike paths and lake excursion opportunities. Located inland, Grand Rapids, the largest center in the area, features attractions such as the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and the Gerald R. Ford Museum. Each July, the Muskegon Summer Celebration offers 11 days of music on the lakefront by some of the nation's most-recognized performers. In Grand Haven, late July and early August is time for the Coast Guard Fest, a week-long festival where families can enjoy a parade, Coast Guard ship tours, boat parades and much more. Other regional activities include golf, dune rides and riverboat cruises.
