Make It The Best Summer Ever!

ESCAPE TO THE LAKE

For generations, Midwesterners have traded the heat and hustle of summer in the city for a cool spot on a Great Lake. Every year they return to Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix, Traverse City, Saugatuck, and countless other tiny waterfront outposts to while away their days on boats, docks, beaches, and ancient front porches, and to pick berries on their neighbors’ centennial farms or fill their baskets with fruit from the roadside stands you’ll find at every turn.

In summer, simple is the name of the game. As we escape to the lake, we celebrate the north’s most fleeting, magical season and reconnect with family and friends at 4th of July picnics, ice cream socials, and beachside barbecues, and we trade stories and memories over slices of Grandma’s cherry pie or cocktails on the porch.
