When Nascar visits the Great Lake State, the Michigan International Speedway is the place to be. Along with the FireKeepers Casino 400, it hosts events year-round – including a dazzling Christmas light show. It’s also the largest campground in the state, so you can rise to the roar of the racetrack. Before the engines rev up, see some of south Michigan’s other sights from these top hotels near the Michigan International Speedway, bookable on Culture Trip.

If you’re cruising through Michigan with your shar pei by your side, Holiday Inn Jackson has a place for you both to curl up. The suites have a sleeper sofa, just in case Buddy boots you out of your bed. When they need a little more than a walk around the block, head down to the Cascades for a long walk in the park and a look at the stunning artificial waterfalls.

You’ll feel right at home however long you stay, with a full in-suite kitchen, a fitness center and an indoor pool. And if you bump into the Bard at the free breakfast buffet, you’re not as mad as Macbeth – it’s just the Michigan Shakespeare Festival in town.

Baymont by Wyndham is here to teach you two things about Michigan: first, the golfing is great, which is why they’ll shuttle you over to the Pierce Lake course for your tee time. Second, the famous Coney Island hot dog was born in the Great Lake State and you’re only steps away from tasting one at Uptown Coney Island. Convenience, comfort, conies: what more could you want from a hotel?

Only speeding into town for the race? Holiday Inn Express & Suites eliminates red lights from your route. This convenient hotel is a 30-minute drive from Detroit Metropolitan Airport and about 45 minutes from Michigan International Speedway, helping you get to the racetrack – and the runway – as fast as possible. A grab-and-go breakfast, paired with a complimentary shuttle, helps you squeeze an extra few minutes for a trip to the University of Michigan.

We don’t know what keeps us in our seat longer at Weber’s Boutique Hotel: the famous prime rib at their restaurant or the awesome live music at the Habitat Bar. Whichever it is, both are sure to send you back to your poolside suite in the best of moods. Whenever you need to work off that amazing beef, the trails at Dolph Nature Area will cut the calories down. And if you get a little too rockin’ at the bar, stay in and play in their pinball arcade instead.

Resort, Cabin
A mere 8mi (13km) from Michigan International Speedway, yet feeling worlds away from it all, Hideaway Cove Log Cabins & Resort is your escape from the roar of the crowds and engines. Snuggle up in a log cabin with the family and grill out while the kids cast lines in Evans Lake. They’ll be thrilled when you take them out on a paddle or row boat, and you won’t mind beers by the fire pit when the little ones fall asleep.
