Glen Lake MI -  perfect day

It doesn’t get much better than this.  A perfect day on Glen Lake in northern Michigan. Just over the dune in the distance is Lake Michigan, which provided our fresh grilled whitefish for supper.

Michigan Free Fishing Weekend  June 12- 13, 2010

As summer in Michigan approaches, Michiganders start to

gravitate toward the 11,037 inland lakes, 36,350 miles of rivers

or streams, or the 3288 miles of Great Lakes shoreline available

for recreation in Michigan [ Included are 12,000 miles

of trout waters].  In fact, there is so much water

available, that wherever you are in Michigan, you are never

more than 6 miles away from a body of water.

Grand River 6th st bridge

If you have fond memories of fishing with your Dad or grand-

parents, then why not create your own memories this weekend?

The Michigan Dept of Natural Resources has declared that you can

fish in any Michigan inland or Great Lakes waters for all species of

fish – without a license – this weekend.

Please note that all fishing regulations still apply.

And don’t forget about safety.  You are still required to follow

all watercraft laws.  So, get out the poles, grab some bait,

and get fishing!

We all like to take a stroll down memory lane.  This video shows Michigan

back before our childhood days. It was filmed in 1949 as part of James A.

Fitzpatrick’s Travel Talks.  Take a look at our bathing beauties, the “Bear

Man” and our stunning Michigan scenery. 

 

The areas shown have grown and changed but the appeal of 

Michigan is still being promoted to tourists today.  And they come by

the thousands to see our unique treasures, such as Sleeping Bear Dunes

on Lake Michigan.  This area is now a National Park and dune buggies

are prohibited on the fragile dune landscape.

 

 Mackinaw Island has attracted people since early times, the original

residents here in Michigan; the Ojibwa, the French, the English, and

tourists have been coming here since Victorian times.

 

 

 

Thanks for visiting  with us in Michigan along this vintage highway

to the past.  We hope you decide to visit us in person real soon.
