Free Passes to Michigan Attractions!
Stuff We Love
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 28, 2021
The secret to keeping the spirit of summer vacation adventures alive into fall? A library card. Yours will not only whisk you away to the countless worlds waiting inside books but also nab you free passes to (real-life!) attractions all over the state. Here’s how: Head to the Michigan Activity Pass website, highlight your home library, click on the kind of destinations you seek (all, kid-friendly, or ADA compliant) and any particular subjects that interest you: art, farms, nature, music, etc., and how far you’re looking to travel from your zip code. A list of museums, parks, recreation areas, historic sites, and more will pop up; you select the ones you want, enter the date you plan to go, and voila! You’re in. Using our Traverse Area District Library – Woodmere connection (OK, library card), we nabbed a pass for the Dennos Museum and Empire’s history museum for an upcoming fall weekend, and we plan to hit the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, the Sea Life Aquarium in Auburn Hills, and the Wild Swan Theatre in Ann Arbor soon.
