Beauty and Fun Await in Coldwater Country

With a whole host of outdoor experiences waiting to be had, Michigan’s Coldwater Country is an ideal destination for a memorable getaway.

“Michigan’s Coldwater Country offers so many vacation experiences for families and friends to enjoy,” says Debra Prater, executive director of Coldwater Country Conference & Visitors Bureau. “With freshwater lakes, beautiful parks, fun things to see and do, plus local events, visitors can immerse themselves in the beauty and hospitality of our communities.”

Summer is an ideal season to visit Coldwater Country. With more than 100 lakes, including two chains of lakes where you can paddle or boat from one lake to the next, it’s a great place to get out on the water.

There’s an overall scenic beauty taken in while hiking, biking, or playing a round of golf on one of nearly two dozen golf courses. Family-friendly activities are abundant from mini-golf and go-karts at Adventure Zone to an afternoon at the Aqua Pit – home to an inflatable obstacle course on the water – to a ride on the historic Little River Railroad, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Additionally, visitors can take in a performance at Tibbits Opera House, which is known and loved for its historic setting and quality theater performances including this summer’s schedule of “Forever Plaid,” “Sweeney Todd” and “Rent,” among others. Visitors can also opt to stay up late for a double-feature at the family-owned and operated Capri Drive-In, one of less than a dozen drive ins left in Michigan.

“Whether you’re getting out on the lakes, exploring the quaint downtowns, or enjoying one of our local festivals, Coldwater Country provides the perfect blend of relaxation and excitement for an unforgettable getaway,” Prater adds. “Coldwater Country is home to so many remarkable things to see and do, and we cannot wait to share these experiences with visitors.”
