Take a self-guided cell phone tour of Emmet County’s parks & recreational sites

toursphereListen and explore Emmet County with Toursphere!

Emmet County and several partner organizations offer a self-guided cell phone tour at county parks and other significant properties and attractions throughout Northwest Michigan. Each site is marked with a sign with instructions on how to access the audio, visual and video components at the location; signs are found along sidewalks, walkways and trails and outside buildings.

Here’s how to access the tour: Using your smart phone, tablet or computer, visit emmetcounty.toursphere.com  You will see a menu of site locations where you can enter and explore the various audio stops and listen in to hear more of our story. If you are on site at one of the parks, you can dial in directly to hear the audio; you will need to punch in the stop number that you’d like to hear if you use this option. The stop number will be listed on the sign at each location. The phone number to call in is (231) 486-0003.

Emmet County partners with Mackinaw City, Heritage Village, Bay View Association and the city of Petoskey in this unique recreational offering.
