Visit Midland, Michigan

Dotted by mid-century modern architecture and artful spaces, places for makers and places to immerse yourself in nature — this inspired city is alive and vibrant, both outdoors and in.

Here, the country's longest canopy walk is yours to roam, soaring up to 40 feet in the air and tucked into the 54-acre Whiting Forest it overlooks. Just cross the bridge to connected Dow Gardens (included in your admission) — where botanical gardens, groves of towering pines, and interesting architectural bridges make this oasis worth exploring in any season!

Plan a self-guided paddle beneath The Tridge — an iconic, three-legged bridge at the confluence of two rivers — on rented craft from Ike's Mobile Kayak Rentals, then browse the Midland Area Farmers Market found at its base. Stroll down to nearby Larkin Beer Garden for food trucks and fall brews into late-September, or enjoy other local haunts like WhichCraft Taproom — serving only made-in-Michigan beer, wine, cider, and mead!

Still, there's much more Midland to explore — touring one of the "25 Best Historic Homes In America" inside Alden B. Dow Home & Studio or using Mid-Century Modern Midland's mobile app to track down more than 400 architectural wonders throughout the city. Spend a day discovering Midland Center for the Arts' two museums, two performance venues, art studios, and more, or take a seat at Space Studios' glaze bar to put the finishing touches on your own take-home pottery.
