They say life is what happens while you’re busy making plans. The eastern shores of Michigan welcome this phrase, eager to help shape the everyday parts of life. The paved bike paths, like Bridge to Bay Trail and waterfront spaces like Blue Water Riverwalk, make the impromptu bike ride or rambling with the kids possible. Great restaurants serving fresh, local fare are right downtown, so you don’t have to travel far for sizzling tastes and original recipes. For your own homegrown eats, farmers markets are selling locally grown goods in nearly every community during the growing season. The Blue Water region’s quaint, shoreline towns are booming with special events. Waterfront concerts, maritime festivals, thundering boat races and historic celebrations deliver spectacular entertainment and cultural influences throughout the year. Life is going to happen and the Blue Water region thrives on enriching your everyday.
