Being a boat enthusiast during the winter months in Michigan can be a bummer. But there is a bright spot this January with the 62nd Annual Detroit Boat Show. The show runs January 18-26 at the TCF Center (the former Cobo Hall). Tickets are just $13.00 per adult and kids 13 and under are free. It is a great break from the winter blues and fun time for everyone.

For this post, we head back up north to the Great Lake states. Boating season is in full swing in this part of the country, so let’s talk about them. The Great Lakes are known as one of the largest freshwater lake systems in the world. With their southern end sitting on the heart of the Midwest and it stretching north into Canada, boating in the Great Lakes is a real treat and probably something for all boaters to experience. Not only does this area provide a combination of historical sites and urban access, but it also provides watersports, fishing and diving.
Boating on the Great Lakes
The Great Lakes provide an excellent variety of habitats for all types of boats: small ski boats, sailboats, fishing boats up to huge yachts and beyond. It’s just something about the vastness of fresh water that makes it so different than boating on the inland lakes. Aside from that, you get to witness its breathtaking scenery and unique wildlife. All five lakes are connected and intertwined with one another in some sort of way and offer a guaranteed a “good time”.
This season has the perfect weather to get out there and enjoy your summer break with your friends or family. One great place to take your boat out is near Glen Arbor, on Lake Michigan. Take a ride out to South Manitou Island you can anchor offshore and climb some sand dunes. Or, you can even go snorkeling and see some ship wreaks off shore. It’s a great place to camp as well.
If you’re looking for more company and like to party, then taking your boat out to Put-In-Bay, one of the Lake Erie Islands is a great place. Not far from Sandusky Ohio, you’ll most likely find yourself on a calmer ride out there than on Lake Michigan. However, when you get there, the boat parties and people-watching is a whole lot different than the seclusion of North & South Manitou.
What States Border the Great Lakes?
Well you might not think so, but there are 8 states that touch the Great Lakes:
- New York
Michigan has by far the most shoreline exposure. In fact is has the most shoreline period, next to Alaska.
You haven’t experienced life to the fullest if you’ve never gone boating on the Great Lakes.
