Butterfly Festival

May In Southeast Michigan

The last Saturday in May is National Pool Opening Day, a day all pool owners look forward to. At Hawaiian Pool Builders, we are here to open your swimming pool and help get your summer underway.

After you have your swimming pool ready to go, why not explore some of the events and spots in Southeast Michigan? Having things to do when the days may be a little cooler is a great way to enjoy the beginning of summer.

On May 13th, the Butterfly Festival will be at the University Of Michigan Museum Of Natural History. What better way to ring in spring then by checking out live beautiful butterflies, learning about their life cycle and helping with a pollinator garden?

The Michigan History Museum is conveniently located in Lansing. The Michigan History Museum offers five levels of permanent and changing exhibits that tell the story of Michigan’s past from early years through the late 20th century. Exhibits include interactive computers, audio-visual presentations and hands-on elements. You should allow at least 90 minutes for your visit. After you are done visiting, within a few blocks is the state Capitol Building, another favorite attraction.

Located in Hanover, not far from Hillsdale, is Twin Pines Campgrounds and Canoe Livery. They have nearly 50 acres of wooded camping along the Kalamazoo River, with both modern and rustic campsites. With canoe and kayak rentals also available, what a fantastic way to spend the weekend away; while still being close to home.

The Treehouse in Chelsea is a fun place to take your family on a day that might not be sunny enough for swimming pool enjoyment but is sure to offer fun for the family. It offers a 1,200 square foot indoor playground featuring five slides, a toddler area, swing bridge and of course a huge Treehouse.

Planet Rock is located in Ann Arbor is fun for kids of all ages. It is among the largest in the world, offering more than 22,000 sq. ft. of climbing area, with 50 ft. high walls, lead routs up to 85 ft., motorized climbing wall, and three bouldering caves. Their unique terrain caters to complete novices and seasoned pros. Kids aged 5 to 95 are challenged by the quick and easy routes as well as the tough competition grades.

With all of these events in Southeast Michigan, you can round out those less than stellar pool days with plenty of activities.

If you haven’t contacted us yet to get your swimming pool opened, now is a great time to get that on your calendar, and ours.
