Wintertime in Northern Michigan is a special time of the year. As a Traverse City native working in real estate for nearly 50 years (gasp!), I know the area well, and along with my fellow Brick & Corbett team, we can share some of the best things to do here in the winter months. From outdoor activities to indoor attractions, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy.
There is a wide variety of outdoor activities to choose from during the winter months. You can explore the area’s beautiful trails and parks, or check out the many local lakes and rivers. Here are just a few of our favorite ways to beat the winter blahs:
Skiing & Snowboarding
Snowshoeing & Cross-Country Skiing
Sledding & Snow Tubing
If you’re more of an “indoor cat” and prefer to stay warm and cozy, we have plenty of options for you.

Wintertime in our region can be a truly magical experience inside and out. With so many activities to choose from, you’re sure to find something that’s perfect for you. So, grab your coat and mittens, and get ready to explore the beauty of winter!
Does Winter Impact the Housing Market?
Yes, it does. Each season offers slightly different opportunities for both buyers and sellers.
- SELLERS: Although winter in Northern Michigan can be cold and snowy, it can actually be the ideal time to sell your home, as buyers may be eager to close a deal before the spring market picks up. Also, a soft blanket of snow adds instant, cost-free curb appeal!
- BUYERS: Wintertime may offer opportunities for potential buyers with a less-competitive market than in the warmer months to come. That means you may have more choices from the current housing inventory than you would later on.
