Traverse City, Charlevoix, Harbor Springs, Boyne City, and East Jordan. These are some of the most spectacular towns in the world. They all have one thing in common, they are located right here in Northern Michigan. Here are a few reasons why you should pack up everything and build a home in this extraordinary place.
Northern Michigan is a foodie’s dream come true. We are home to some of the best restaurants in the state, like Red Ginger, Cafe Santé, Grey Gables, and Stafford’s Pier. You will not be disappointed with the vast number of eateries this area has to offer.
The Great Lakes are one of the best parts about Northern Michigan. These lakes provide 20% of the world’s surface fresh water and excellent swimming and fishing. Not to mention they are absolutely stunning to look at, you won’t ever be disappointed with a summer sunset overlooking Lake Charlevoix. It never gets old.
It is no secret that Northern Michigan is beautiful, but there is so much more to it than just the waters. Visit the stunning apple and cherry orchards (don’t forget to pick some while you’re there), go to a historic fudge shop downtown or wine tasting at one of the many amazing vineyards in the area.
Northern Michigan is one of the few places that has all four seasons. There is nothing like picking apples from Friske’s orchard in the fall, skiing at Boyne Mountain in the winter, hiking the Sleeping Bear Dunes in the spring, or relaxing on the Torch Lake sandbar in the summer.
In a Northern Michigan town, you can always expect one thing: a positive and joy filled environment. Community is easy to find because it is all around. These people are pitching in to volunteer with local charities or school events, and celebrating through themed events like the Morel Mushroom Festival and the National Cherry Festival. Northern Michiganders have a unique way of making everyone feel connected in such a widespread area.
