Live where you vacation. The phrase is common and one you’ve probably heard before. So, what would housing look like to live in or around the resort community of Ludington?
The Lake Michigan shoreline, inland lakes, rivers, forest and parks are a vibrant part of any vacationer’s dream, but just imagine if this was part of your daily life: Walks along the pier to watch ever-changing sunsets, sailboats and fishing boats cruise the coast while the Badger crosses Lake Michigan to Wisconsin, and 600-ft. freighters travel north and south along the horizon. Early-morning shoreline searches for beach glass and fossils, skipping stones while seagulls and terns glide overhead and shorebirds scurry along the water’s edge. Sand castle contests, burying friends and family in the sand, swimming, body-surfing in the waves, wind-surfing, kite-boarding and parasailing. Exploring, hiking and biking miles of trails along lakes and rivers or in the Manistee National Forest. Gorgeous fall color right outside your door. And don’t forget fat-biking, hiking shoreline dunes or snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing in winter, plus four-season fishing and hunting.
Miles of municipal, state-owned and neighborhood parks mean the beauty, drama and opportunities of Lake Michigan and the surrounding area are at your fingertips, regardless of how you are financially enabled. Shopping and dining, festivals, cultural and educational activities could all be part of your daily life. Whether in an apartment, condo, cottage, bungalow, subdivision, on acreage or in the elegant lake front home of your dreams, opportunities to be part of this vibrant community are abundant.
