These 3 MI Places Ranked Among Best Summer Travel Destinations

MICHIGAN — Michigan has some of the best places to visit this summer, according to a WalletHub ranking released Tuesday.

There are three areas in the state included among the personal finance website’s Best Summer Travel Destinations 2024.

WalletHub released the list of 100 US destinations likely for summer travel based on travel expenses and hassles, local costs, attractions, weather, activities and safety.

“When picking a summer travel destination, it’s easy to focus just on the types of activities you want to do or certain cities you’ve always wanted to see,” WalletHub Analyst Cassandra Happe said in the report.

“However, choosing a destination that’s not only entertaining but also affordable is important when travel, dining and activity costs have surged so much in recent years. It can also allow you to have a longer, more relaxing trip.”

These are the areas in Michigan that made the cut, as well as their rankings:

No. 22, Grand Rapids-Kentwood Metro Area

No. 36, Detroit-Warren-Dearborn Metro Area

No. 92, Lansing-East Lansing Metro Area
