June 14, 2018 5:21:07 PM
From high atop Castle Rock, to the tranquil shores of Lake Huron,
is a delight to explore during the summer months. Here are three ways to enjoy the pristine wilderness and shoreline wonders of the St Ignace region in the sunshine…
Forget Hawaii and Jamaica… The beaches that lie just west St Ignace town center can beat any tropical island – hands down. The fresh water is crystal clear and there are no stinging jelly fish or sharks to think about – just clear, fresh water and horizons that stretch forever and ever. And for the real wow-factor, check out the wind-swept Lake Michigan Sand Dunes. The beaches there are considered to be the finest in the Midwest.
The Straits of Mackinac have over a dozen lights strategically located on and around the islands, reefs and shores of northern Lakes Michigan and Huron. Many of these lights are still working today, while others stand as memorials to generations past.
offers a variety of lighthouse cruises, including an evening cruise, so you can see the lights at work as the sun slowly sets and the stars come out.
3. Hiawatha National Forest
Known as the ‘Great Lakes National Forest’,
Hiawatha National Forest
is surrounded by the three upper Great Lakes: Michigan, Superior and Huron. The region is a teeming ecosystem and you’ll find a wide array of fascinating habitats, from northern hardwoods and jack pine to inland wetlands. The forest is also home to the Grand Island National Recreation Area, Whitefish Scenic Byway, six lighthouses, five Wilderness areas and the Clear Lake Education Center.
If you’re looking for a relaxing hotel on the Straits of Mackinac shoreline, the
BEST WESTERN Harbour Pointe Lakefront
is a great option. With its waterfront rooms, private balconies, indoor and outdoor pools and whirlpools, the property has a laid-back resort-like atmosphere.
