  • Kellogg Bird Sanctuary
    Established by cereal tycoon (and environmentalist) W.K. Kellogg in 1927 as a haven for the Canada goose, the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary sits at the intersection of three major migration routes. What began as a home for natural wildlife, journeying waterfowl, and other birds and beasts, has grown to be a world-renowned center known for its contributions to ecological science and evolutionary biology. However, the sanctuary is still a home for birds?lots of them. Amidst the lush scenery on the banks of Lake Wintergreen, visitors can spy hundreds of waterfowl, including trumpeter swans. And a birds-of-prey enclosure houses a bald eagle, an eastern screech owl, and other slightly fearsome fliers.

  • Mayfaire Renaissance Festival
    Each year at the onset of summer, the costumed bards, knights, and royalty at Mayfaire Renaissance Festival welcome visitors to enjoy rollicking entertainment and peruse handcrafted wares throughout the wooded festival grounds. Attendees step into a world of jousters and jesters, replete with Renaissance-era songs and dances and smartphones fashioned from mutton. All-ages-appropriate comedians regale families with zany antics, and visitors can ask mystical tarot-card readers questions about the future.

  • Binder Park Zoo
    Binder Park Zoo hosts an exotic coterie of more than 140 animal species, all administered to in accordance with the exacting standards of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Navigate the map of habitats, or hop on the free Wilderness Tram for rapid transit straight to the Wild Africa portion of the grounds to glimpse an impala's prancings, a mangabey's antics, or an ostrich's rude refusal to acknowledge visitors. Fans of gargantuan gullets can drop some food into the stretched esophagi of seven reticulated giraffes at the Twiga Overlook, and a red kangaroo displays its preternatural quad strength by jumping and deadlifting a tree trunk. Once casual backpackers work up an appetite on the 1.3-mile hiking trail, they can refuel with the two combo meals from either Beulah's Restaurant or Kalahari Kitchen. Use the two tokens for rides on either the Z.O. & O. Railroad or the Binda Conservation Carousel.

  • Kingman Museum
    In The Kingman Museum’s newly opened mezzanine exhibit, a polar bear, frozen mid-snarl, presides over his fellow Ice Age beasts. Surrounding this tableau are glass cases filled with fanged skulls of extinct predators, prehistoric pottery, and miniature replicas of ecosystems. The eclectic exhibits lend the room the aura of a cabinet of curiosities, and are indicative of The Kingman Museum’s expansive mission to “provide lifelong learning opportunities in natural history, the universe, and world cultures for all ages for all time.” The scope of the museum reflects the swashbuckling spirit of its founder, Edward Morris Brigham. In the late 1800s, the explorer embarked on expeditions down the Amazon River, hiked across the Alaska tundra, and hopscotched across Hawaiian Islands. He toted back with him exotic specimens, fossils, and cultural artifacts, which now form the core of the museum’s collection. Over the years, the museum has expanded to include a planetarium, which screens nearly two dozen educational films that range from deep-space exploration to quests for the long-lost city of Pittsburgh. Additionally, museum curators inspire young minds with a slew of educational programs.

  • Gull Lake View Golf Club & Resort
    Golfers often search for new challenges, and staying at Gull Lake View Golf Club & Resort gives you access to five. The resort boasts five 18-hole golf courses throughout the area, each with a unique array of hazards dotting the forested terrain. One of the newest, Stonehedge South, earned praise from Michigan Golfer. The regional magazine declared that "each hole at Stonehedge could be considered the ?signature hole? as all offer excellent chance for golfers to hit a variety of shots into quick rolling, gently sloping greens." After a day on the greens, guests can retire to two-bedroom, two-bathroom villas located on the Gull Lake View East course. Each one features a full kitchen with basic supplies, a balcony or patio, and a large living room. Guests are also welcome to use the communal grilling area or enjoy classic American fare and Michigan-brewed draft beer at East Course Grill.
