Planning a Michigan staycation this summer? Or looking for low cost family activities? Would you like to get into 230 Michigan attractions for free?
This year, Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) has created new partnerships with Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and Michigan Recreation and Parks Association that has led to the addition of around 230 state parks, recreation areas, state forest campgrounds, and state historic sites to the MAP program. The new program began on May 24, 2015.
LIBRARY CARD REQUIRED: You need to have a library card (from your local public library) to qualify for free admission with the Michigan Activity Pass.
- Search the Michigan Activity Pass website for fun Michigan activities with free admission. (Some attractions offer only a discount, such as the Michigan SeaLife Aquarium; read details carefully).
- Select your activity (passes can be limited) and print your pass from home. Once you print out a Michigan Activity Pass (MAP), you will have only 7 days to use it.
- Only original passes can be redeemed at museums (available from your library). Copies of MAP passes will not be accepted at museums.
- Before your visit, call ahead or check the location’s website in order to confirm hours of operation, etc.
For discounts focused just on metro Detroit, the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau also has just expanded its “D-Pass” listings.
