Spring break in Marshall County is just a short week away and if you are staying closer to home we have some fun ideas to enjoy for a weekend or just a day trip. Make memories with your family and friends while enjoying our communities and attractions.
Hiking and Explore the Outdoors…
Bundle up and head out and work your way over to the Lake Maxinkuckee Path where you can enjoy scenic views of Culver while enjoying the fresh air. You’ll get to see glimpses of Culver Academy as well as well as other areas of Culver you wouldn’t get to see if you were driving. Enjoy the 2.5 miles path with friends, family or buy yourself for some quiet time.
Potawatomi Wildlife Park and get into nature and explore one of our county’s hidden gems! Plants and animals come first at this sanctuary that’s a haven for hikers and birdwatchers. Boarded by the Tippecanoe River, it’s made up of woodlands, fields, ponds, and wet-lands and is home to the state’s first Dark Sky Preserve, designated a perfect place to view the sky at night without interfering light. The park, which encompasses 317 acres and contains nearly five miles of hiking trails, is also located near Benack’s Village which was lead by Osheakkebe, also known as Steven Benack. There is some awesome history that can be found at Potawatomi Wildlife Park. If that isn’t enough adventures for you here, , you can cross country ski on the trails as long as the weather permits it.
