Yesterday, we recommended snagging a cheap flight to Iceland. Today, we’re going to tell you all about why heading to Michigan in the middle of February may not be a bad idea. Sensing a pattern? Yep, that’s right: places that are cold would very much like you to visit them during the Winter when it’s not quite tourist season.

The good news? According to Michigan Live, this is going to be an extremely warm month for the state. Normally, temperatures range from the 30s during the day to the 20s (and lower) overnight. However, this week’s weather predictions have the temperature in the 40s, and possibly even heading to the 50s and 60s. Point being, if you’ve ever dreamed of a Michigan vacation that wouldn’t cost much, and wouldn’t have you sticking your hands directly in a roaring fire to stay warm, February 2024 may be the month for you.

But to mangle a phrase: you probably wanted the news, not the weather. Thankfully, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation has rounded up a slew of February deals that will make your Michigan stay all that much more awesome.

A few highlights include:

- 57% off lodging at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, MI.

- $200 dining credit if you stay in the Boathouse Villa at Bay Pointe in Shelbyville, which is more of a Shelbyville idea if you ask us.

- 15% off a hotel package in trendy Ann Arbor.

- 10% off a ski trip at The Earl in Charlevoix, plus a free s’mores kit.

There are a ton more deals and ideas at the site, including a craft beer tasting, skiing for the kids, and even a discounted Michigan t-shirt, which you might actually get to wear outside if the temperature does indeed climb to 50+ degrees.

You check out all the deals at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation website linked above, and grab ‘em quick. Per the name “February deals” a number of them expire on February 29, 2024.
