From harbor communities and historic neighborhoods to sweeping farmlands and lush landscapes, Michigan is truly a gateway to relaxation and excitement for any traveler hoping to take in the Midwest. The area is often known as the festival capital of the nation because, regardless of the season, there are tons of award-winning festivals going on to enjoy, such as celebrations at the Friendship Botanic Gardens, the annual Mill Pond Festival in Union Mills, the HannaFest, which celebrates the history, culture, and people of that small community, or even the longstanding LaPorte Sunflower Fair, a terrific one-day festival for the entire family.
Celebrate the outdoors with warm summers, moderate spring and autumn weather, and cool winters at this ideal all-season destination. Easy, simple rural living awaits.
There’s never a shortage of activities to do around here. Stroll over to the only working lighthouse along the shore of Lake Michigan in Washington Park, or see a world-class art exhibition or performances at Lubeznik Center for the Arts, located just steps from the lakefront. The area is also home to over twenty orchards, farms, and gardens offering an array of choices from fruits to pick, animals to visit, and corn mazes to get lost in—not to mention some of the finest acreage of parks, beaches, wetlands, uplands, golf courses, and hiking trails in the Midwest. There’s even the Shady Creek Winery to take a tour of if you happen to want to sample some silver medal-winning Beach Glass and Pinot Grigio wines!
While the Lake Michigan shoreline itself is spectacular to explore, there are plenty of other spots to draw you in as well, including a slew of thriving communities all filled with rich experiences, scenic drives, rural landscapes, and urban amenities. Experience classic Midwestern hospitality by visiting fruit orchards and farms galore, or by taking in the excitement of Michigan City, where you’ll find the Blue Chip Casino and the beautiful Washington Park. Shop till you drop at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets before heading down to the scarecrow festival to taste some incredible Wanatah blueberries in the South County area.
From hotels and motels, to charming inns and guest lodges, you’ll find a wide variety of accommodation options. Choose a quaint and quiet B&B with turn-of-the-century details, or a slick and chic casino resort complete with luxurious spas and familiar name brands. Why not lounge by a stonework fireplace in a Greek Revival Mansion, or take in some spectacular sunsets overlooking the lake from a beachside rental home?
There are sweet dreams for all tastes at budgets that’ll allow for a chance to brunch over home-cooked pancakes inside a farmhouse before taking a nice trek through wooded trails and gardens and then capping the night off roasting s’mores under the stars. The choices in Long Point are aplenty, so take your pick.
