July 4th Up North!


We do 4th of July in northern Michigan, and we do it good.

Spend some time up here and your summer glass will be aaaaalmost full, with a little room leftover for a beverage or two. Parades, 5Ks, fireworks, festivals, live music, famous Michigan cherries - all paired with a beautiful Michigan backdrop, the prettiest beaches, brightest sunset, and clearest water you've ever seen. 

The 4th of July just screams summer, doesn't it?! Bask in all the glory and sunshine that a Northern Michigan summer offers. Grab a paddleboard, kayak, or something to get you out on that water. An inner tube will do the trick too!! Spend a morning at the Boyne City farmers market. Hit a bike trail - paved or dirt. Go for a solo hike. Do some golfing! Gather for a bonfire with s'mores. "Stroll the Streets" in Boyne City and listen to some live music. At the end of the day, you'll be wanting one of these. 😎
