Things to Do in Bay View
Bay View is just a beautiful place to getaway to for a fun and relaxing trip! Bring your own or rent a bike and ride the trails in Little Traverse Wheelway, which connect all the way to Harbor Springs!

Day Trips from Bay View
Heading south on Highway-31 along the shores of Lake Michigan makes for a picturesque drive to Traverse City. This coastal city is definitely a bit larger but still maintains an amazing lake resort community. There are all kinds of shops and restaurants to be discovered here! You can easily spend a day just walking around looking at everything. It will take about 1.5hours to drive here so plan your day accordingly. If you don’t want to go quite as far then consider heading north about 15 minutes to Harbor Springs. There is definitely some great shopping here! If, however, you really want to go on an adventure then drive less than an hour north to Mackinaw City. This is not the final stop though! Get on a ferry and get off at Mackinac Island where you will be transported back in time to an era before the invention of the car. You can ride bicycles, walk or take a carriage, but there is no driving here! Eat the fudge and check out the different shops. If you plan accordingly and you’re on the island in July then you might just get to see one of the two sailboat races to Mackinac Island.
