Cruise Ships Will Visit Muskegon After Two Years of Cancelations
How cool is this? Cruise ships will once again visit Muskegon after two years of COVID-19 cancelations.
It may sound like a short period of time, but waiting for two years to see these cruise ships again will definitely help tourism in the Muskegon area.
My wife and I go to Muskegon every summer because it's such a beautiful part of Michigan. Muskegon is well known for fishing, sailing, and it's cruise ship port as well.
According to the Detroit Free Press:
Muskegon is located in western Michigan and has a port on Muskegon Lake, off Lake Michigan. It had busy cruise ship seasons scheduled before COVID-19 canceled plans. In 2020, 35 stops were planned, and there were 25 stops expected in 2021.
With all the cruise ships visiting Muskegon again this summer, you have to know that tourism will be back to normal again. Tourism in Muskegon alone is a more than $300 million industry.
The Detroit Free Press also tells us:
The first cruise ship this season is scheduled to stop on June 7, Lukens said. The Pearl Mist, a 210 passenger, six-deck ship, is scheduled for 10 ports of call this summer. It will stay overnight in port on five stops.
This summer my wife and I will head back to Muskegon and we plan on staying at the Hoffmaster State Park. It's such a beautiful state park and there are over 2 miles of beautiful sandy beaches. And there is plenty of hiking in that area as well.
We'll spend time at the state park and enjoy extra time watching cruise ships making there way to Muskegon Lake, off Lake Michigan.
