Here’s Michigan’s Top Outdoor Attraction… And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It

We’re kind of spoiled here in Michigan when it comes to outdoor attractions. We’ve got access to countless beaches, remote forests, lakes, even mountains (ahem, Porkies).

Thing is, you can’t always have a bunch of those amenities in one place, or if you do, you’re so far removed from “civilization” that it’s somewhat inconvenient if you need to run to the market for more rations. Well, one place you’ll find it all is Beaver Island.

If you’d rather not rough it camping you’ve got several lodging options to choose from. And the local townspeople are super friendly to the more than 50,000 tourists who vacation on the island each year – you’ll feel right at home.

Tell us, have you been on the island? What do you love about it?
