As summer begins to come to a close, there’s no time like the present to book your last-minute Michigan vacations to Big Bear Adventures before school is back in session. When you’re looking for things to do in Michigan with kids, there are so many fun activities on-site to keep your entire family entertained during your stay. Even if you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway, each day will bring a well-deserved day to escape from the daily grind. We’ll go over our three favorite kid-friendly activities to do while you’re here!

18-Hole Adventure Golf

During your Michigan vacations, we know that keeping the kids entertained throughout your stay is a must. Our Family Fun Center offers a place where your kids can test their aim on the 18-hole mini-golf course. You’ll encounter water hazards such as waterfalls, streams and watch out for the swinging log on the course! Practice your golf game bright and early in the day or late in the evening before heading back to your room.

Ropes Course

For those with a bit of a daring side, you’ll enjoy the ropes course where you can take your adventure to a whole new level, literally! The ropes course promises a safe, fun day outdoors with your entire family as you venture through the challenge. Encourage your little ones from down below as they traverse through the 11 different elements that will test balance, focus, and patience. The course will take around 20 minutes and will be one of your favorite things to do in Michigan with kids.

Bumper Boats

During the last stretch of summer, you’ll want to soak up the sun on the water while it’s still shining. The Bumper Boats in the Family Fun Center offers a chance to splash around while having a spray gun battle with your family! The boats will be a highlight of your daily adventures as you laugh, spin and rock your way around bumper boat pool.

Big Bear Packages

Get the most out of your daily adventures by purchasing the Triple Play Package where you can do the ropes course, bumper boats, and play mini-golf during your stay. When you’re planning a birthday party for your little one, we also have a bounce house available for rent. The Little Bear Package features a 90-minute party including adventure golf, the bounce house castle, and bumper boats as well as add-on features like pizza and glitter tattoos.
