The resort communities of Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Boyne City in northwest Michigan have created memories for generations of visitors. Some stories tell of running with delight into Little Traverse Bay. Other stories include biking, shopping, or golfing.
Pulses race when recalling Avalanche Bay™, Michigan’s largest indoor waterpark; or the thrills of the Odawa Casino Resort. Vivid images come to mind of shopping in the Gaslight District in Petoskey, the elegant Village at Bay Harbor, and downtown Boyne City and Harbor Springs.

The allure of our waters will stay with you always.

Even the architecture says you’re someplace special. Our historic neighborhoods showcase homes from a simpler era, and our downtown districts feature buildings that have been around since the days of horse-drawn buggies.
