Muskegon County Convention & Visitors Bureau
Muskegon is the perfect natural playground for anyone who relishes the beauty of clear, blue water against a sugar sand beach, the quiet contentment of a campfire in the woods or the thrill of reeling in the big one. Muskegon is graced with 26 miles of unspoiled beachfront. Pere Marquette, currently one of the few nationally certified “clean beaches” on the Great Lakes, has made national news as one of the cleanest and most beautiful shorelines in the nation. With three state and eight county parks, you’re never far away from the beaches of Lake Michigan or a scenic, forested campground or hiking trail. Our area boasts over 60 miles of winding trails for hiking and biking enthusiasts! Campers’ only dilemma will be choosing from one of many beautiful campgrounds. Muskegon is also one of the nation's preeminent fisheries. We’re home to 57 lakes and some of the best fresh water fishing in the world! In addition to our natural adventures, try Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and Water Park, and ride miles of thrills aboard Shivering Timbers Rollercoaster or defy gravity on the Funnel of Fear. Our Muskegon Winter Sports Complex offers a more extreme kind of excitement, featuring one of only four publicly accessible luges in the United States. The addition of the new fiberglass luge allows for summer fun as well and is the only wheeled luge in North America. Cross Lake Michigan aboard the Lake Express high speed passenger and car ferry from Muskegon to Milwaukee in only 2 1/2 hours. Enjoy a live concert on Muskegon Lake during one of our great summer festivals such as Unity Fest or the Michigan Irish Music Festival. We’re also very proud of our Muskegon history and culture and invite you to visit our beautiful Museum of Art, the USS LST 393 Veterans’ Museum, the USS Silversides Submarine Museum and the Hackley & Hume Historic Site. Downtown is also home to the Frauenthal Theater which hosts the West Michigan Symphony, the Muskegon Civic Theater and many other entertainment and musical acts all year long. We invite you to “Experience the Lake Effect” in Muskegon County. No matter the season, get caught up in the moment and the magic that makes sun worshippers happy and snow angels smile!
