A Northern Michigan vacation at Boyne Mountain or Shanty Creek over the 4th of July weekend is a sure-fire way to fun.  With the two resorts’ special vacation packages, golf deals and family-friendly events, this year’s Northern Michigan 4th of July is looking more explosive (in a good way!) than ever.

Staying at Shanty Creek

Starting at $169 per couple per night, Shanty’s Summer Getaway Package includes accommodations in their Lakeview Hotel and two breakfasts.  Golfers can enjoy Shanty’s Player’s Choice Package, where individuals can enjoy one day of unlimited golf at any single Shanty Creek golf course and one night’s lodging for $129 per person. Check out other golf packages at ShantyCreek.com.

Shanty Creek’s 8th Annual Freedom Festival begins at 7 pm on Saturday, July 5th behind the Lakeview Hotel.  It’s an Independence Day celebration for the ages, with plenty of fun for the whole family:

  • Kids’ games and activities, including a bounce house, dunk tank, face painting and s’mores
  • Live music and lawn games
  • Outdoor barbecue and pool party
  • Fireworks show at dusk

$5 per attendee, and free for children 4 and under.

Staying at Boyne Mountain

With plenty of golf and lodging packages to choose from, you’ll be living a doubly fun life during your Northern Michigan 4th of July: golfer by day, pyrotechnic critic by night.  Check out their Stay and Play golf package, which gets the most bang for 108 bucks: one round of golf, overnight accommodations, $25 Odawa Casino voucher and discounted add-ons.  Find more at Boyne.com.

From Thursday the 3rd through Sunday the 6th, 4th of July weekend at Boyne Mountain is four days of fun: wagon rides, scenic chairlift tours, plenty of food specials and nightly bonfires (with yummy s’mores).  Catch fireworks at the Village of Bay Harbor on Friday and then a show the next night in Boyne City, Petoskey or Harbor Springs, which all host fireworks on the evening of the 4th.  Learn more at Boyne.com.
