Summer in the City

A quick bike ride or walk with the dog will take you to the beach, joining others who appreciate the natural beauty and peaceful surroundings. Early morning runs provide a different view but just as spectacular is the water and the atmosphere of this special place.

South Manitou Island, Leelanau County, Michigan

Not far from Traverse City are many opportunities to expereince the big lake's hostory.
A ferry takes day visitors and overnight campers to the island once each morning. Be sure to get reservations ahead of time, get to Leland early in the day (enjoy breakfast at the early Bird) an be prompt to the ship, located at Fishtown.
We have only done day trips so we rush around the island trying to see everything before returning to the port for the 4 pm departure back to the mainland.

There's So Much to this Place

It is hard to describe the joy of living here. The city itself is lovely. Right on the water and the people generally appreciate their lives here. We recognize the gift of having surroundings that others can only visit for a brief time each year.
And within 30 miles you have the spectaculr Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, where you can hike for days...literally. Check it out and come visit.
