History Happened Here

Welcome to where you can literally walk in the footsteps of literary legend Ernest Hemingway, who spent his childhood summers on Walloon Lake. ­­­Other famous landmarks include the "Mushroom Houses" of Charlevoix, and culturally rich Native American sites. The Inn at Bay Harbor is also just a short drive from one of the most places in the world-the Straits of Mackinaw. The spectacular Mackinaw Bridge joins Michigan's two peninsulas, while Fort Michilimackinac and Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City and St. Ignace all offer a slice of history, and fudge, to curious Day Trippers.
