Valentine’s Day and President’s Day always land smack-dab on the 14th and 17th of February, but this year the two holidays span the workin’ man’s best friend: the weekend. So if you are feeling a little patriotic, have an employer who’s graciously given Monday the 17th off, and happen to be craving a getaway in Northern Michigan, the following list of special President’s Day packages should guide you, your family and fellow Americans, and your pocket-sized Constitution to a weekend retreat comparable only to a stay at the White House guest suite.

The (Teddy) Roosevelt…

Looking for a President’s Day outdoor escape? Ski & Stay Package at Boyne Highlands Resort in Harbor Springs including overnight hotel lodging, 12-hour lift ticket, breakfast buffet, and tubing starts at $166 per person, per night. When staying on a package, children ages 8 and under, sleep, ski, ride, and eat breakfast for free. Additionally, juniors—ages 9-15—receive reduced price rates.

The Jefferson…

How can you pay tribute to one of American history’s most fiscally-conscious minds? By visiting Shanty Creek in Bellaire! With lodging rates from a rock-bottom $99 per night, discounted lift tickets, a variety of family-friendly slopes on Shanty Creek Resort’s two mountains, a re-designed Monster Park and live entertainment at both Ivan’s and The Lakeview, this year’s President’s Day weekend will be one to remember!

The Taft…

We can look back and giggle at the fact that William Howard Taft—the U.S.’s 27th President—got stuck in a porcelain bath tub…but does that really sound so bad? At Traverse City’s Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa, enjoy the elite ski resort’s Ski & Spa package: you’ll receive one night of lodging, open-to-close lift tickets from arrival to departure, and $100 to spend at the award-winning Crystal Spa at a 20% discount. So, in the name of Taft, take a mud bath at Crystal Mountain and never get out.
