A true sign of the Ludington summer season is when the S.S. Badger, the last coal-fired steamship in operation in the United States, crosses Lake Michigan daily to Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Not only is the Badger resuming sails in 2024, but it is starting the season a month earlier than expected on May 17.
