Here’s an invitation to step off the grid and step into a world where the sunsets come in colors we didn’t know existed. Where the forests whisper, run and play, a place of endless possibilities. A small town right out of a storybook – Manistee.
Step off the grid and step into a world where fall sunsets come in colors we didn’t know existed. Just off the beaten path, we find Manistee. A Victorian port city where the water reminds us to just slow down. Waiting on the western shore of Michigan, you'll find the space to golf, hike, wander and sail. Meander nationally acclaimed highway M-22, where fall bursts with color – the hills come alive with vibrant oranges, reds, burgundies and yellows. Pumpkins and cornstalks line the roads and the apples are yours for the picking. So here’s Manistee's invitation to just slow down in Pure Michigan.
