DURAND, Mich., –– The early months of the year can certainly feel like the doldrums in Michigan, with sunset being around 5pm and freezing cold temperatures that really just make you want to stay inside. However, there are ways to enjoy yourself this season while you're waiting for Summer to come (because we all know Spring doesn't really exist in the mitten state). Experience and enjoy these seven things to do around Michigan this winter.
