Muskegon Michigan- The Facts

Muskegon County is our little slice of the Lake Michigan shoreline in Michigan! We’re a 4-season playground with things to see and do for every member of the family – everything from relaxing on the beach or playing in the sand to riding roller coasters and splashing in a water park at Michigan’s Adventure Amusement & Water Park, to sliding down an 850-foot luge track at the Winter Sports Complex, you’ll find something to do every day during your stay. And don’t forget our great festival and event line-up, where you’ll find something for everyone’s taste, all year-round.
