Flexible Stay? 4 Reasons to Make a Midweek Reservation

While weekend getaways are always a draw for local visitors, check out these 4 reasons to choose a midweek reservation over a weekend one:

  • Easier travel: Once Friday hits, northbound roads like I-96 and US-31 see lots of traffic. Head north midweek for a smoother trip and fewer slowdowns.
  • Less waiting at restaurants and shops: Restaurants can get very busy on the weekends, or you may be suck in line for ice cream! Come midweek and you’ll see fewer lines and shorter wait times.
  • Fewer people on the dunes: Looking for a peaceful walk or drive on the dunes? There’ll be fewer pedestrians and buggies out during the week.
  • Better hotel deals: Who doesn’t like a great deal! With fewer people booking rooms Sunday-Thursday, rates tend to be lower.

The Silver Lake area features everything you need for a fantastic summer vacation away from the city: Awe-inspiring natural beauty, great places to stay, delicious places to dine, friendly locals, and of course — plenty of sun, surf, and sand!
