Kayak September in Michigan? Yeah, it doesn’t get much better than that! Paddle Antrim (Antrim County, MI) is hosting a two day kayaking festival through Northern Michigan’s Chain of Lakes. That’s 40 miles in two days. But you don’t have to do both days – why wouldn’t you? In case you don’t, you can do either one or both.
