Sure, we all know and love Michigan’s gorgeous beaches and natural areas, but there’s more to our home-state than just bustling lakefront towns and sand-dunes. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, consider stopping by one of these weird roadside attractions in Michigan:
Housed in Hickory Corners, the Midwest Miniatures Museum is home to all things small but mighty. The displays of artfully-crafted minis are surprisingly impressive, and you can even enlist in a DIY miniatures class.
You don’t need to be a kid to think dinosaurs are cool. The Dinosaur Gardens in Ossineke is an awesome sight to behold for Jurassic junkies of all ages. This giant outdoor wonderland is home to dozens of enormous dinosaur statues, plus a mini-golf course, kids’ fossil dig site, and a yummy frozen yogurt bar.
Did you know the world’s largest Christmas store is right here in Michigan, and it’s open all year long? Bronner’s is home to hundreds of thousands of Yuletide goodies, from lights to ornaments and beyond. They’ve been spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear since 1945. If you’re feeling the spirit of “Christmas in July” (or even “Christmas in August” if that works better for your schedule), then hurry to Frankenmuth, Michigan with bells on.
