Senior Winter Destination

Muskegon has a wide variety of amenities for senior visitors including  cultural festivals, museums and historic homes. This favorite destination for those who enjoy the sports, activities and traditions that winter brings, offers cold weather fun like a vigorous stroll on snowshoes through the wooded dunes of P.J. Hoffmaster State Park, a trip down the luge at the Winter Sports Complex or a holiday excursion with the family to see the World’s Tallest Singing Christmas Tree.


I’d want to be sure to take in the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex with an Olympian Designed Luge Track.

TripAdvisor has almost three dozen attractions all lined up for senior visitors starting with the Pere Marquette Park. Michigan’s Adventure is a 250-acre amusement park in Muskegon County. It is the largest amusement park in Michigan.

Golf, Naval History And Lumber Barons


Senior golfers, toss your clubs in the trunk as there are 18 holes of challenging golf set on a scenic island.  The USS Silversides Submarine Museum features Naval history on display in a spacious museum complete with tours of a preserved WWII sub. That sounds like fun.

I know that my wife would enjoy touring the beautifully restored Hackley & Hume Historic Site homes and a walk through the unique living spaces showcasing how local Muskegon lumber barons lived in bygone days.

Enjoy your stay in scenic Muskegon. -jeb
