A charming little town

Charlevoix is one of the little waterfront villages that charmed me the most on our visit to northern Michigan. I regret that I don't have more, and better, photos to share. The town has two waterfronts - one of Lake Michigan, one on Lake Charlevoix. The marina is on Lake Charlevoix.

The downtown is characterized by lots of neat little stores, especially featuring clothing and artwork. There was also a nice variety of restaurants, delis and coffee shops, several with sidewalk seating.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Clean little marina, nice beach, great shopping
  • Cons:Traffic through town can get snarled by draw bridge.
  • In a nutshell:Lots of charm

    My wife and I are going to be up in this area in August this year. Our oldest son is getting married in Petoskey Bay on the shores of Lake Michigan weather permitting.

    The beaches on the lakes around Michigan are very nice - it's the cold water that is unbearable.

    Looks like a place to relax. I like mushroom house and the beach. Greets.
