Overlooking the West Arm of the Grand Traverse Bay, the Great Lakes Children's Museum in Traverse City is true to the area's nautical theme. Kids can climb a lighthouse, sail a sloop, or spy on siblings with the periscope. Teaching children about the balance of the fresh water ecosystem, be sure to also sail a magnetic boat down the scale model of the Great Lakes waterway (available if a birthday party isn't in session). Crawlers and toddlers will enjoy soft toys and blocks in the "Toddler Beach" area while parents oversee the creative process at the nearby art pavilion area. A fun destination in the winter, the museum is cozy enough for a morning or afternoon (those of us with more than one child will appreciate the open, one story floor plan and central restrooms).
