Curated Day Trip: Discover Sleeping Bear Dunes (Adult)

Discover Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes

This bus trip brings you to a truly beautiful place—Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore—to discover natural and human history. Begin with an enlightening stop at the Philip A. Hart Visitor Center, followed by a picturesque ride along Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, punctuated with pauses for breathtaking sightseeing. Learn about the area’s fascinating history from knowledgeable guide Eric Hemenway, Director of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, while enjoying a picnic lunch. Bring your camera to capture the views!  

Dive deeper into history at Glen Haven Historic Village, a lumbering village restored to how it was around 1900, where you can witness a blacksmith at work, explore various Great Lakes boats, and more. After immersing yourself in the village, stroll along the beach or visit the Maritime Museum. Conclude our memorable day with a delicious dinner in Cadillac at Lakeside Charlies as you reflect on why Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore earned the title “Most Beautiful Place in America” from Good Morning America. Fee includes transportation, admission, snacks, tours, boxed lunch, dinner and all gratuities.
