When is the best time to fly to Michigan?

Peak Season:

Summer and fall are the high seasons. Overcrowding in the summer is not uncommon. The shores of Lake Michigan are particularly busy, and Mackinaw Island is very crowded, especially on weekends. June and July have the most family visitors, and the crowds at the shore begin to recede after Labour Day.

The foliage season starts around mid-September with the colours reaching their peak by mid-October. This is also a very popular time for outdoor adventurers and anglers.

Off Season:

Spring is the off season and when most travellers find cheap flights to Michigan to take in the wildflowers blooming, whitewater canoeing at its best, and excellent angling.

Winter is quiet except for the downhill and cross-country skiers in the Porcupine Mountains.

Getting around Michigan

Michigan has several airports with scheduled local Michigan flights to destinations within the state. There is bus service in the southern part of the state, but otherwise buses are infrequent. There is train service through Detroit, Dearborn, and Ann Arbor.

Overall, driving is the best way to get around the state, including the cities. The good news is that southeast Michigan, including Detroit, still has some of the lowest car rental rates in the region. Michigan has an excellent system of highways and interstates. The Upper Peninsula has only 72km of interstate highway and is an enclave of scenic two-lane roads and rural towns. When you are in a rural section, keep an eye out for wildlife crossing the road. If you are visiting in winter, check the road advisories before heading out as roads can be closed by weather conditions.

Mackinaw Island, however, does not allow cars. All travel on the island is by horse or bicycle. There is ferry service to Mackinaw Island from Mackinaw City and St. Ignace.

During the mild seasons, cycling is also a popular way to get around. Traverse City especially has lots of bike paths in and around the city.
