The best place to spend the Fourth? Right here in northern Michigan. Fourth of July spent right here in our backyard is summer in its truest form - filled with parades, beaches, hot dogs, fireworks, and more. With your choice of crystal clear lakes and sandy beaches, plentiful festivals and events, and firework displays lighting up every corner of the sky, this region was meant for the Fourth.
