5 Northern Michigan places to visit in 2019

DETROIT - Northern Michigan is filled with beautiful and historic places to visit.

There are countless places to road trip to, but here are just a few to add to the list (if you haven't already!):

Petoskey, Michigan

Petoskey is located on the shores of Lake Michigan's beautiful Little Traverse Bay in northwest lower Michigan and is known for its fresh air, spectacular beauty and of course, Michigan's state stone, the Petoskey Stone.

Manistique, Michigan

The harbor town of Manistique is located on the Lake Michigan shoreline in the beautiful Upper Peninsula and surrounded by state and national forest land for great recreational opportunities. Once a thriving lumber town, Manistique is now a central destination for enjoying attractions and recreational activities year round. History buffs can tour Seul Choix Point Lighthouse and Historic Fayette town site. Visit Palms Book State Park, "Big Springs". Two hundred feet across, the forty foot deep Kitch-iti-kipi is Michigan's largest spring. Over 10,000 gallons a minute gush from fissures in the underlying limestone. 

Ludington, Michigan

Like a natural utopia, Ludington and Mason County offer an abundance of parks, beaches, inland lakes, and rivers. Their signature feature is our most graceful and bountiful element, the water in and around the Ludington Area. Situated on beautiful Lake Michigan, there are miles of sandy coastline to catch some sun, take a stroll, play where the waves meet the land or enjoy a sunset bonfire.

Mount Bohemia Adventure Resort

Mount Bohemia is an 1,100 acre adventurer all-inclusive resort on the shore of Lake Lac Labelle, and two miles to Lake Superior. This resort is for the outdoor enthusiasts who love the outdoors and being active all day. The only all-inclusive resort in the Upper Peninsula offering meals, guided tours to kayak, hike, bike or fish - all for one price. Mount Bohemia is surrounded by forests, water and clear skies - nature at its best and is almost as far north as you can get in Michigan near the northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. 

Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan

There's something magical about the twin cities of Saugatuck and Douglas. Home to one of Conde' Nast Traveler's "Top 25 Beaches in the World" and recognized for USA Today's "Best Small Coastal Town," they've been helping people from all walks of life feel at home for over 100 years. Whether you come for the Lake Michigan shore, the endless sunsets, the pristine dunes, the charming downtowns, the artistic, open-minded vibe, or the inviting places to golf, fish or kayak, you'll find a natural playground worth exploring 365 days a year.
