Save Money with the Michigan Activity Pass


Eileen Button Eileen Button Before heading out of town this summer, be sure to download your Michigan Activity Pass through the Genesee District Library. This cool program offers library patrons a one-day pass to explore hundreds of Michigan’s state parks, museums, campgrounds, historic sites and cultural attractions for free or at deep discounts.

Local participating attractions are many and include the Sloan Museum, Flint Institute of Arts, Longway Planetarium and Applewood Estates. In Traverse City, you can download passes to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, Leelanau State Park or Traverse City State Park.

In Mackinac, passes are available for Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry, the Icebreaker Mackinac Maritime Museum and Tahquamenon Falls Riverboat Tour.

And in the Detroit area, you can download passes to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Belle Isle Park, Cranbrook Art Museum and the Michigan Science Center.

Other attractions around the state include South Higgins Lake State Park, Tawas Point Lighthouse, Saugatuck Dunes State Park, Yankee Air Museum and Meadowbrook Hall.

These are just a few of the hundreds of passes available. The website is super easy to navigate and can be accessed through the Genesee District Library’s home page at thegdl.org under Headlines, or at michiganactivitypass. info.

This is the third year of the MI Big Green Gym partnership, which encourages physical activity and exploration around our great state. The Michigan Activity Pass is made possible by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Michigan Recreation and Park Association, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and The Library Network.

This summer, you won’t want to leave home without it.
