Recommendations for Western Michigan Trip (Silver Lake/Ludington area)

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip from the Chicago area to Ludington. Does anyone have any comments/recommendations on this itinerary? I don't think I will stop by the zoo in Grand Rapids since I just went to Brookfield Zoo and the St. Louis Zoo. I also don't think I will stop by the Children's Museum in Grand Rapids since we have gone to a couple of great children's museums recently. I am not sure if there are any other good activities for preschool aged kids which I am missing in the below trip plan.

7/26 - drive from Chicago area to Pentwater
leave Chicago area at 8:00 AM
??? do something on the way to Pentwater?
Arrive at Pentwater around 1:30 PM
Stay at Best Western Pentwater Trace Inn & Suites
Eat at House of Flavors Ice Cream

7/27 -

Mac Wood’s Sand Dune Ride
Silver Lake State Park
Go back to hotel for nap (3 yr old takes naps)

Eat at The Brown Bear

7/28 -
Ludington State Park
Go back to hotel for nap
?

7/29
