Car: Necessary

In a forgotten corner of Northern Michigan away from the hoards in some surrounding towns lies Cross Village and Sturgeon Bay. Beautiful, uncrowded beaches and views that are next to none. Sand dunes, beach combing and water activities, the list of things to do is endless. Near the famous towns of Mackinaw City and Harbor Springs ,yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and solitude.

Other Activities: Mackinac Island, Shopping in Harbor Springs
