March in West Michigan

What’s Included This Month

We’re starting to move towards spring, here in West Michigan. With the change in seasons comes Spring Break. Spring Break gives you and your family time to take a little vacation (or staycation!) before the spring and summer travel seasons get into full swing. Get the most out of your Spring Break with Spring Lodging Specials. Many West Michigan destinations are offering discounts and special packages to help you plan your next getaway without breaking the bank.

There are two holidays on the horizon, starting with St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, March 17th. The festivities start early to get you in the mood for this Irish holiday, with parades, fun runs, Irish food, and more. You’ll find even more fun throughout St. Patrick’s Day weekend: the peak of this festive holiday.

It’s also time to start preparing for Easter, which is on Sunday, April 1st. West Michigan is celebrating with many Easter traditions: egg hunts, brunch, and visits from the Easter Bunny. Figure out your family’s Easter plans early by placing reservations for brunch and creating an itinerary of activities!

The history of West Michigan and the Great Lakes is rich with Lighthouses. They have lit the way for boats on the Great Lakes for decades, and many still stand as historic landmarks and tourist attractions. WMTA is celebrating these lighthouses with the 30th Anniversary Edition of the Lighthouse Map + Circle Tour, available in April. Click here to request the new Lighthouse Map + Circle Tour, and we’ll have it mailed to you for free.
