Northwest Michigan has been a vacation destination for generations. Situated along the eastern coast of Lake Michigan and the shores of Grand Traverse  and Little Traverse Bays, water is a significant part of the landscape here, along with charming villages and pastoral farms.

The serene hillsides and stunning shoreline of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the impressive Headlands International Dark Sky Park, are some of Michigan's most treasured gems.

Michigander's consider this region the culinary capital of the state and the Tart Cherry Capital of the World, for its delightful Montmorency cherries. Sweet and tart cherries, apples, strawberries, peaches, plums and apricots flourish here. The area is also home to a prominent wine industry noted for its world-class Rieslings.
