PAUSE

Welcome to Gaylord, Michigan!

Located smack dab on the 45th parallel, Gaylord is truly the heart of northern Michigan. Fondly known as the Alpine Village, our newly remodeled, Swiss-themed shopping district offers visitors a unique variety of stores, microbrews and scrumptious dining options. The downtown Pavilion is a popular gathering place for festivals, community events, entertainment and a farmer’s market, along with a vast array of family friendly activities.  

With over 90 inland lakes, seemingly endless miles of outstanding hiking and biking trails, a winter wonderland bursting with activities for snow lovers and the Gaylord Golf Mecca’s selection of world-class golf courses, Gaylord is your four-season favorite destination!
