Lake Michigan shoreline, pastoral beauty, towns that look like they came out of the pages of Saturday Evening Post, a drop-dead gorgeous Chain of Lakes and the most remote inhabited island in Lake Michigan define this region. Hop the ferry to Beaver Island, watch boats chug under the drawbridge in Charlevoix, check out the yachts in the Elk Rapids Marina, rock hunt on a quiet Lake Michigan beach, grab a beer at Short’s Brewery in Bellaire, spend a summer day floating Torch Lake on a pontoon—and so much more. The Charlevoix & Chain of Lakes is where vacations turn into lifetime memories.

ELK RAPIDS This little harbor town set on a thin strip of land between Elk Lake and Lake Michigan rolls out sweet as a storybook.

CHARLEVOIX Charlevoix the Beautiful, as this charming town bills itself, sits between Lake Michigan and Round Lake—which is connected to big, beautiful Lake Charlevoix and to Lake Michigan. With three lakes, five stunning beaches, the downtown waterfront East Park and first-class marina, this city is for water lovers. But that isn’t the end to the fun here. Historic storefronts filled with eclectic boutiques and galleries add to the city’s character, as do annual plantings of petunias that line Bridge Street (the city’s main thoroughfare). There’s enough community spirit to welcome visitors with open arms—to outdoor concerts at East Park’s band shell, to festivals, craft fairs and farmers markets. Read on to find more about what makes this city a prime Midwest vacation destination. visitcharlevoix.com.

Vacation

BEAVER ISLAND The 32-mile trip by small plane or ferry from the mainland to this, the largest island in Lake Michigan, is just the beginning of the adventure. The rest is in the expansive beaches, forests, two lighthouses, quirky history and great restaurants, bars and shops. beaverisland.org. DON’T MISS Beaver Island Music Festival is a three-day outdoor event that features music of all traditions and art. Camping is available. July 14–16. beaverislandmusicfestival.com. Professional and student musicians from all over the country gather to perform classical music during Baroque on Beaver. July 29–August 7, baroqueonbeaver.org.

HISTORY In the mid-1800s, a renegade Mormon leader and self-anointed prophet named James Strang led 300 devotees to the island, where he ruled over his independent Mormon “kingdom” until his assassination by followers in 1856. Following Strang’s death, Irish immigrants established a new enclave on the island. By the late 1800s, 95 percent of the islanders were Irish, and Gaelic was the common language. (Of the 881 residents in 1880, there were 141 Gallaghers, 123 Boyles, and 90 O’Donnells.) Relics of both the Mormon and Irish communities still survive today: the Mormon colony’s former print shop is now a museum, and the island’s two Irish pubs are the only establishments open year round.

GETTING TO THE ISLAND Round-trip fares to Beaver Island run approximately $60 on the ferry and $100 by plane. For details, check out the transportation companies.
