With some terrific road trip options in the surrounding area, having your own car makes good sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to enjoy everything that Ludington, 30 miles away, has to offer. Among the first stops you make here should be S.S. Badger: Lake Michigan Carferry, Ludington State Park and Stearns Park Beach. Frankfort is another wonderful option. It’s 30 miles away and boasts an array of awesome things to do. Point Betsie Lighthouse, Frankfort Beach and Frankfort Light are just the start.
