What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Skiable Feasts, Second City, and Lantern-Lit Snowshoe Trail

Food, comedy and classic winter activities—Northern Michigan has multiple chances to enjoy them all.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association shares details on What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Skiable Feasts

Don’t miss the seventh season of Skiable Feasts at Treetops Resort in Gaylord.

Now through early March, you can cross-country ski through the resort’s beautiful trails, with stops at gourmet food and drink stations along the way.

The ski route is 6 kilometers long and you’re encouraged to take it at your own pace.

Stop at all of the stations along the way to enjoy chili, stroganoff, sliders, beers, wines, and much more.

Add an overnight stay at Treetops to your visit to get the full experience.

Second City comedy show

The Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City invites you to join them on Feb. 1 for the Second City comedy show.

Fresh, fast, and always spectacularly funny, the Second City is celebrating nearly 60 years of producing cutting-edge satirical revues.

If you want to flex your own funny-bone, join the Second City before the show for a hands-on improv workshop.

Tickets are available through The Dennos Museum Center box office.

Lantern-Lit Snowshoe Trail

Visit Tahquamenon Falls State Park on Saturdays in February for their Lantern-Lit Snowshoe Trail event at the upper falls.

Enjoy winter by taking a lap on the mile-long trail lit with more than 75 kerosene lanterns.

Snowshoes or cross-country skis are required.

The park will provide free snowshoe rental, a bonfire, and refreshments.

It’s recommended you bring a headlamp or flashlight and a sled to pull young children.

No reservations are required, but snowshoes are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
