Five Places in Michigan You Can Take a Helicopter Tour This Summer
From Downtown Detroit to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, these helicopter tours will allow you to see the state as you've never seen it before.
Over the years, Michigan has really turned into a vacation hotspot. It may not feel that way if you live here, but it's true.
Taking helicopter tours in Michigan has also become very popular and not just with tourists.
There's a company in Michigan that offers multiple tours that overlook must-see places in our state.
My Flight Tours offers five different tours that you can take in the summer months.
See Detroit from one amazing perspective, the sky above. With this tour, they give you the option to see the city of Detroit during the day or at night. You can also take the Ambassador Bridge Tour and fly along the Detroit River which gives you a killer view of Windsor and Detroit.
Mackinaw City Tours
The Mackinaw City tours offer three different tours. One that takes you right over the Mackinac Bridge which would be amazing to see from above. There's a Bay tour that takes you 1,000 plus feet above the bright blue water. There's also another Mackinac Bridge tour but it's a little more expensive and takes you over the bridge at sunset.
Muskegon/Grand Haven Tours
Fly over Mona Lake and check out the area's surroundings, fly down the shoreline to the historic and scenic Grand Haven lighthouse, or do a coastal or sunset tour.
St. Ignace Tours
With this one, you can again see the Mackinac Bridge (day or sunset trip), check out East Moran Bay and Downtown St. Ignace from over 1000 feet in the air, or do a custom Mackinac tour where you simply tell the pilot where you want to go.
Ludington Tours (New)
With this tour, you'll see Ludington like never before. This ride gives passengers views of Downtown Ludington and beautiful Lake Michigan. You'll go up 1,000 feet in the air and cover 7 miles.
The helicopter tours seem to be pretty affordable with most starting out as low as $50 per person. The price starts to go up depending on what tour you decide to take.
They also offer some others tours outside of the summer months including Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, and Allegan.
Of all these tours, I'd really like to fly over the Mackinac Bridge the most. The view from the video above is absolutely incredible.
