Updated: Apr 3, 2023

Maple sugaring, ski resort events, spring break and more! Browse the top things to do with kids in Northwest Michigan this March!

Maple Sugaring

Maple sugaring events are a great way to have fun with kids! Children can learn about the maple syrup production process and see how syrup is made from tapping maple trees. Plus, tasting fresh maple syrup is a sweet treat that kids are sure to love.

Spring on the Mountains

March is for ski resort fun! The weather can be milder and more comfortable, making it easier for children to stay outside and enjoy the activities. Crystal Mountain, Nub's Nob, Shanty Creek and The Highlands at Harbor Springs all host fun, family-friendly events in March.
