It’s a scientific fact! Experiences bring more joy than material “things”.

Experiences allow us create and share memories. Consider giving a loved one (or yourself – self care is good!) the gift of making memories this holiday.


Here are 5 unique gift giving ideas. Each easy to purchase and fun to give.


Skate through Muskegon State Park on a winding, lit trail. Or, on a 2 acre outdoor rink of natural ice. Cross country ski, and snowshoe through the trails that lead to Lost Lake and a view of Lake Michigan! Sled or snowboard down a family friendly hill… and more! As long as there is snow, there is something to do at the Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park! Equipment rental passes are also available.
