Crystal River Outfitters Featured in “Travel Awaits”

Do you find yourself dreaming of warm, sunny days of summer?  You’re not alone.  The folks at Real Simple say that January is the best time to begin planning your summer vacation.  After all, there are so many things to consider: where to stay, where to eat, must-see destinations and activities.  Crystal River Outfitters is featured in a recent article released by Travel Awaits which provides advice on “How to Spend a Weekend at Sleeping Bear Dunes“.

You’ll receive tips on some of the best locations within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, along with suggestions for places to eat and stay.  The article features The Cyclery bike rentals including hybrid bikes, tandem bikes, and fat bikes to enjoy on the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.

Other points of interest include Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, the Dune Climb, and the many inland lakes around Glen Arbor and Empire.  When you’re done recreating, there’s more fun to be had on the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail and M22 Tasting Room at Wine patio located in the Crystal River Recreational District.  And, don’t forget some of our favorite restaurants too…Funistrada and Village Cheese Shanty in historic Fishtown.

Don’t forget all of the other activities offered in the District – shopping, kayaking, and wine tasting!  And, maybe the best part of all?  Crystal River Outfitters Recreational District is open year-round with winter rentals when the snow flies!

Thank you, “Travel Awaits” for featuring Crystal River Outfitters.  We hope you enjoy the article and use as a resource.  Dare we say, there’s enough to fill up a full week, not just a weekend?
