Attractions

Gaylord, Michigan, rentals are a great way to stay rested while on vacation. With the many attractions and activities that the city has to offer, it’s important to get a good night’s sleep at the end of each day. Area attractions and activities can be indoors or outdoors, high-energy or calm. The Call of the Wild Museum and Gift Shop is an example of an indoor attraction. It features wild animal displays as well as educational information and a large gift shop. For outdoor activities, visit the Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve for summer hiking or snowshoeing in the winter. In Gaylord, nature itself is an attraction that shouldn’t be missed. Families who visit during the fall can see the many colors of the season by following mapped fall color tours. These driving tours take tourists past impressive areas of fall’s most amazing colors. Area elk are also an attraction for vacationing families who’ll want to get up early and spend a day away from their rentals in Gaylord, Michigan. Families can view elk at Aspen Park, which also has biking and walking trails.
Some attractions in Gaylord are perfect photo-taking opportunities. The Pontresina Stone, which was given by Gaylord’s sister city in Switzerland, is an example of a photo-taking opportunity. Families visiting in the winter will also want to venture from their Gaylord, MI, rentals to photograph the city’s ice tree. A fun family outing involves following the Owlpine Bear Trail in a hunt for bear statues that stand four feet tall. The trail allows tourists to view local artistic talent.

Every July, the festival brings live entertainment, food, crafts, carnival rides, and parades to the area. The Thunder Over Water Festival takes place in August and promises fun for everyone. The event includes breakfast, a parade, arts and crafts, and other events. Also in August, families can spend a day away from their Gaylord vacation rentals to attend the music festival in the woods that is Farmfest. In December, kids staying in Gaylord rentals will be thrilled to venture downtown and welcome Santa Claus in the annual Santa Parade.

------------------

Gaylord Climate

Gaylord typically has pleasantly mild summers and cold winters. Summer temperatures rarely exceed 80 degrees in July and August, while temperatures dip into the teens during January and February. Spring and summer tend to be the driest seasons in Gaylord, while late summer and fall are usually the rainiest times of the year.

How to Get Around Gaylord

To reach Gaylord, plan to fly into Lansing's Capital Region International Airport or the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. Since Gaylord is in the relatively remote reaches of northern Michigan, you'll want to have your own set of wheels to navigate this vacation paradise. Once in town, you'll be able to walk from most Gaylord vacation homes to local attractions, but you'll want to drive to the parks, lakes, and forests.

Top Things to Do in Gaylord

Get a feel for this friendly town by taking a self-guided walking tour through downtown. Along the way, pay a visit to the Otsego County Historical Museum to learn more about the area, explore Buck House or Kramer House, run around in Shannon Park, and visit the original Gaylord Motor Car Factory. Discover another longtime family favorite at Call of the Wild, a Gaylord institution that features displays of bears, wolves, coyotes, owls, and other native wildlife. This family-friendly destination also features a theater and discovery room, along with go karts and miniature golf next door.
Next, get outdoors and explore the Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve, which features hiking, biking, and horseback riding in the summer months. In the winter, rent snowshoes at the preserve or go cross-country skiing through nearly 800 acres of property.
Just 45 minutes north of Gaylord, discover some of northern Michigan's most scenic forested areas in the Pigeon River Country State Forest Area and the Gaylord State Forest Area. Both feature hiking, hunting, and fishing, along with tranquil forests and streams as far as the eye can see.

Can't-Miss Gaylord Events

Part celebration of German heritage and part midsummer festival, Alpenfest is one of Gaylord's premier festivals each July. Watch the parade, join in the contests, enjoy the pancake breakfast, and dance along to the live entertainment. With nonstop events over the course of five days, you might want to plan out your route from the pie-eating contest to the Alpenfest Idol competition in advance.
If you visit Gaylord in August, you won't want to miss the Otsego County Fair. This weeklong event has drawn locals and tourists for over 100 years, and it features everything from a carnival to a horse show to rides to grandstand shows to farm animal exhibitions. Fun for the whole family, the Otsego County Fair is a must in mid-August.
Whether you're seeking local flavor or stunning natural resources, Gaylord has plenty to offer. Book your choice of Gaylord vacation homes in any season, and relax in one of northern Michigan's best small towns.
