Best Up North

The Homestead

Lake Michigan’s spectacular vistas make this a resort unlike others. The color of the water–sometimes blue, sometimes turquoise, sometimes golden–is one reason why. Another is relaxing along the water. You and each member of your family or group can do as much or as little as you like.

That’s why this resort is celebrated, both near and far, as The Homestead, America’s Freshwater Resort.

Lake Michigan Resort

Though expansive, the resort is quite simple to picture.

It was designed, built and is managed to help you enjoy the Most Beautiful Place in America.

On its west are miles of sandy beaches on which you can walk for hours. The beaches are soothing by day, spectacular at sunset, remarkably romantic on starry nights. To its east is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the area chosen by the viewers of ABC’s Good Morning America as “The Most Beautiful Place in America.”

Within the resort, neighborhoods separated by nature provide a wide range of high-quality accommodations. Some are perfect for couples, some for families, and some for groups. All are beautiful. There are shops, restaurants, and recreational facilities. There are places for weddings, , and meetings. All of them are staffed by caring and attentive professionals.

You could be pampered at the spa or salon, sit by a pool, play a round of golf or hike in the National Lakeshore. Or, you could teach your kids to swim, play tennis or golf, ski or snowboard.

Simply said, you decide how you want to spend your time in the Most Beautiful Place in America. We take care of the rest.

What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

Our trip to Mackinac Island was around sometime end of September and by that time, fall has already started in the Midwest. After we passed the light house tower while onboard starlinemackinacislandferry, right before our port on the island, we had this amazing view of the Ste. Anne Catholic Church surround by some of the greatest fall colors I’ve ever seen. Every since I took this picture, I was very excited to post it. I’ll post a close up of the church later as I get more into talking about the Island!

Traveling to Mackinac Island which sits between Michigan and its “Upper Peninsula” is like traveling back in time: no cars or mechanized transport are allowed on shore, it’s main harbor is filled with sail boats including those arriving on the annual Chicago Yacht Club Race, and its cobble stone streets are dotted with white picket fences, Victorian painted ladies and old timey fudge shops. And yet still, despite all these anachronistic embellishments of a bygone era, the island is still more progressive on issues of structural racism than Founders Brewing. Cheers!
