Call us biased, but we think the Great Lakes State is home to some of the world’s friendliest people. After all, it’s tough not to be chipper when we live among such stunning surroundings, and this tends to be reflected in the way we treat visitors to various parts of the state. While we might jokingly complain about tourists, the truth is that Michiganders are a delightful bunch – and the friendliest town in Michigan deserves a spot on your travel bucket list.
Ludington is located along the shores of Lake Michigan in Mason County. This lovely harbor town boasts a rich history, some of the prettiest scenery in the state, and upwards of 8,000 welcoming residents.
While you might have passed through Ludington on previous adventures or even spent a few days along the beach, there’s always more to discover here. If you’re seeking a carefree outing, it’s tough to go wrong.
The town is home to a little something for everyone. Of course, many Ludington visitors are keen on Ludington State Park itself, which boasts a lighthouse, campgrounds, sand dunes, and fresh air.
During your beach adventure, you’ll surely be met with upbeat fellow beachgoers of all ages. After a day along the shore, keep the fun going with a visit to House Of Flavors for mouthwatering ice cream treats.
Some of the warmest moments happen in relation to food, so check out one of Ludington’s local gems to truly feel like part of the community. We’re partial to Chef John’s Bakery and Brenda’s Harbor Cafe.
In the mood for a bit of shopping? No matter what the weather is like, you’ll find lots to love throughout Ludington’s charming downtown area – quaint bookstores, boutiques, toy shops, and more abound.
Of course, no getaway is complete without a friendly and comfortable place to spend the night. We recommend one of Ludington’s bed and breakfasts, such as the delightful Lamplighter B&B.
By the time you’re ready to head home, you’ll feel invigorated by your experiences in this small town along the shores of Lake Michigan. Ludington will always be waiting to welcome you back with open arms.
