Beach People Are Happy

On Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan, Charlevoix has some of the best beaches in the world. Furthermore, you can easily get to Lake Michigan Beach from downtown by walking along the pier. As a result, this makes it ideal for a slow stroll. Likewise, people who go to Ferry Beach can swim in the shallow end of Lake Charlevoix, play on a playground, and build sandcastles on the sandy beach, which is great for kids. Hence, for information on the many other beaches in the area, check out our site.

Petoskey and Charlevoix Stones

One of our favorite things to do is look for stones from Petoskey and Charlevoix. In addition, they can be found in Fisherman’s Island State Park and on Lake Michigan Beach, two of the best places to find them. Moreover, if you want to spend a long time looking for these stones, you can.

It’s the Beaver Island Boat Company

It has been taking people and cars from Charlevoix to Beaver Island since 1984. Moreover, 3.4 million dollars from both the state and the federal government helped build the Emerald Isle ferry in 1997. Of course, this was their main ferry, and it was built thanks to grants from both. Ferry service: The boat company also has tours of Beaver Island, which is called “America’s Emerald Isle.”

With or without ferry tickets, you can book a tour and go on a trip together. In addition, tours that last for a half-day or a full day go to the island’s St. James Village, the two lighthouses on the island, museums, churches, and shops. Full-day tours give you a chance to go beachcombing in Iron Ore Bay, which is near the coast. In addition, guests who want to go on a summer tour and take the same-day ferry must get there by 8:30 am.

Ironton Ferry, Michigan: Charlevoix, Michigan 

Until 1876, the Ironton Ferry on Lake Charlevoix in Michigan had no cars or people on board. It was still powered by horses and didn’t have any people or cars on board. They only run in the spring and fall. They can hold up to four cars at a time.

This is where the Pine Lake Iron Company is now. Ironton is where George Hemingway lived during the summer. His nephew, Ernest Hemingway, used to spend a lot of time there, so the south ferry landing is now called Hemingway Point because of that. My Summers on Hemingway Road is a collection of short stories by Alicia Hein Cook. Hemingway used the location in his book, ‘The Nick Adams Stories.’
