Did you know that 83% of American workers want to use their time off to travel? We don’t blame them! To celebrate National Plan for Vacation Day, we created three traveling personas: The Adventurer, Family Fun, and Food Lover. Check out our blog posts to see what each of these travelers could do with their vacations in Livingston County!
The Adventurer is someone who likes to be outside and active! Our first recommendation for The Adventurer is to check out Mt. Brighton, especially in the winter months! If they’re not up for skiing and snowboarding they can try any of these other winter activities. Another outdoor favorite is the various biking trails in Livingston County. Being outdoors can be both exhilarating and refreshing, and these activities will bring you the best of both!
Family Fun is all about traveling with children and pets. Pet-friendly activities can be challenging to find, but there are plenty of activities for you and Fido to enjoy together in the Brighton-Howell Area! Our blog includes both parks and restaurants that welcome your best friend tagging along. One of our favorite activities for children is the Howell Nature Center! Explore and learn about animals in a safe environment. If the weather is not looking good, there are plenty of fun indoor activities for the entire family as well. No matter the age or size, every family can find something fun to do in Livingston County.
Who doesn’t love food? Livingston County has a cure for anything you’re craving. Make sure to check out our Sweet Treats Itinerary for all of our local bakeries and shops. For those of you looking for a cold one, we have you covered. Our Brewery Tour gives you a glance into our craft breweries and wineries in Livingston County. And for those of you with food restrictions or looking for a lighter meal, we have a Vegetarian Options Blog which features restaurants that cover more than just vegetarian diets.
