Published: July 30, 2014

Maybe we're biased, but if you're an adventure lover or outdoor enthusiast, Michigan is THE place to be in the summer. With so many amazing activities to choose from, how can you possibly decide? No worries! We've got you covered. Here's our list of the top 5 Michigan Summer Adventures:

1. Go Skydiving at Midwest Freefall - Hey, it's our list right? But seriously, is there anything more thrilling and adventurous than skydiving? We thought you'd agree! Summer is best time to see Michigan from above at 120mph!

2. Climb the Sand Dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore - Voted "The Most Beautiful Place in America" by ABC's Good Morning America! Climbing to the top of these enormous sand dunes and then making the wild run/roll/tumble down is unlike anything you've ever experienced! It'll make you feel like a kid again!

3. Explore shipwrecks in Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary - This is scuba diving and snorkeling like you've never experienced. Lake Huron's fresh water has left these 150+ years old shipwrecks perfectly preserved for you to explore up close and personal.

4. Sail Traverse Bay- Get in touch with your inner seaman: charter a Tall Ship or learn how to sail a yacht in the waters surrounding what Fodor's has called one of the "10 Best Small Towns in America".

5 Raft the mighty Menominee River- The 40 mile stretch from Iron Mountain to Menominee offers some of the fastest-moving rapids in Michigan surrounded by unbelievable scenery. And keep your eyes peeled for Bald Eagles who are known to frequent this area.

You've been informed - Now go live your Michigan Summer adventure!

This is an amazing drop zone!
