Point Betsie Lighthouse
The color of the water here is amazing! And fantastic rock hunting. Explore nearby Frankfort.
This is a must see spot. I love walking South along the beach and looking for rocks.
Point Betsie is one of the most iconic and recognizable lighthouses in the state of Michigan. Just a short drive from our cottage, this architectural institution is a must see no matter how old you are!
“A fun local brewery with good food about 10 minutes away in the heart of Frankfort, MI with main street shopping and a public beach on Lake Michigan. ”
“Waterfront (on Betsie Bay) pub and grill with live entertainment in Elberta about 10 minutes away. ”
“Great Mexican food for NW Michigan (says the Texas-born/raised guide). Bean dip and shrimp quesadillas are a favorite.”
“Fabulous local artist print shop, carrying on the traditions of legendary natural artist Gwen Frostic. Bonus: an alpaca farm is just up the road!”
