Driving

If possible, driving will be your overall best transportation option - you’re going to want to see all the area has to offer!

 

From Chicago, you’ll head into EST for a roughly 5&1/2 hour drive. Make your way to I-90 E to I-94 E till you hit I-196 N. Although you can hug the lake for a more scenic route

along US-31 N, its best to head towards Grand Rapids and take US-131 N to M-115W.

 

From Ohio, depending on where you begin, your drive will only be about an hour longer. Make your way to I-90, and drive from US-23 N, i-75 N and US-10 to Surrey Township. You’ll continue on to M-115 W to M-55 W and find yourself in

the thick of the Sleeping Bear Dunes area.

 

Be sure to plan your trip ahead and make time for stops! There are some genuinely lovely places to stop along the way you wont want to miss, see our recommendations for more information. Don't forge to take a stroll down historic M-22!
