When you fly to Muskegon County Airport (MKG), you grant yourself access to enriching experiences along Lake Michigan's eastern shore. No matter the time of year you decide to visit, the area will provide a getaway full of history, art and culture.
To shop and dine at local businesses, head north to downtown Muskegon. While there, you can explore the Lakeshore Museum Center, a curated complex that features natural and human history artifacts, science exhibits and restored Victorian homes. Nearby, you can explore a wide variety of artworks at the Muskegon Museum of Art.
A trip several minutes northwest on Lakeshore Drive will land you at the USS Silversides Submarine Museum, where you can tour a retired WWII submarine and several other vessels. Afterward, visit nearby Pere Marquette Park, where you can walk along a sandy beach alongside Lake Michigan.
Nighttime in Muskegon should include taking in a show at the Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts. You can catch local plays and touring performers at this well-maintained venue.

Rental cars are available near the terminal in MKG, or you can reserve space on an airport shuttle. If you come to Muskegon in the fall, bring a quality camera to capture the area's trees ablaze with red and orange.
