Those of us who get to call the “tip of the Mit” home know first-hand about the benefits of living in Northern Michigan. Whether the landscape is white with snow or the temps are warm and we’re drawn to the water, we live in one of the best places to fully enjoy the seasons and all they have to offer. It’s no surprise that Northern Michigan is a destination for many to spend not only their vacation, but for many a desirable location for a second home or vacation property. Whether you live here full-time or looking for a “getaway” to be able to enjoy all that the area has to offer, it doesn’t get any better than living in Northern Michigan!
A Winter Wonderland Awaits
With the landscape now white with a blanket of snow, it means all sorts of reasons to get outside and play for us that live “up north.” Whether you prefer to get in the woods on a snowmobile, cross country skis, snowshoes or just a good pair of boots for a hike, the opportunities to enjoy our winter wonderland seem to be endless. Northern Michigan offers hundreds (if not thousands) of miles of trails to explore the pines and lose yourself from the hustle and bustle of society, if only for a few hours. And when you’re done and need to warm up after a day in the cold, there’s nothing better than cozying up to a crackling fire with friends to remember the day and plan your next adventure.
Spectacular Summertime Fun
Ok, so maybe the idea of heading to the lake isn’t at the top of your list this time of year (yeah, it’s a bit chilly out there). But, you can’t dispute that when warm weather arrives in Northern Michigan we are pulled to the water to enjoy a refreshing dip, a relaxing trip on a sailboat or maybe pile the family into the ski boat for some excitement. Some will opt for a fishing pole in search of the “big one” on some of the best fishing streams in Michigan or take a seat in a kayak for a leisurely paddle. Summer also means picnics with friends and family, the sizzle of burgers on the grill or the sweet smell marshmallows toasting over the evening bonfire (as you build that perfect s’more).
