Best New Midwest Attractions: 2009
Skate Hans Brinker-style
Glide through snow-frosted woods hand-in-hand with your honey at Muskegon Winter Sports Complex's new outdoor ice-skating trail in Michigan (40 miles northwest of Grand Rapids). The 10-foot-wide ice loop meanders 780 feet through a dimly lit pocket of forest, far from the squeals ringing from the popular luge track and lighted skating rink. In 2009, a new fiberglass luge track will offer more adrenaline rushes for sledding speed junkies.
