Discover downtown Ludington on the Lake:
In addition to our popular and spectacular state park, Ludington is becoming home to an increasing number of specialty shops and art galleries. The downtown shopping district runs along Ludington Avenue and down James Street and Rath Avenues, both of which cross Ludington Avenue. A short walk from Stearns Park Beach and the marinas, downtown Ludington is home to the famous House of Flavors and Anna Bach's chocolates, as well as galleries, antique shops, a natural food store, a skateboard shop, a full-service music store, and specialty shops offering a range of gifts, new and consignment clothing, quilting, knitting and crocheting supplies, housewares, furniture, books and Ludington-made art and crafts items. As you stroll, enjoy Ludington's murals on downtown buildings and sculptures in Waterfront Park, many of which reflect the lumbering and maritime history of Ludington on the Lake.
