West Michigan Lake Rated #2 in America
Well this hits home for me, literally. I grew up just outside of Charlevoix and went to school there, and spent countless hours on this lake and was next to it nearly everyday in my childhood.
A USA today poll was done, and lake Charlevoix came up at #2. It is a beautiful lake, no question. I was just at it a few weeks ago. Nice as ever. Only Lake Tahoe (Granted, is MUCH bigger) beat out our Lake. Fine be me. Keep Tahoe - I'll take a Northern Michigan lake any day!
"With several small, tourist-adored towns surrounding it, Lake Charlevoix boasts some of the world's finest sunsets, beaches, boating and gastronomy," wrote reader Chase Petroelje.
Sounds about right to me. A little secret: Go check it out in the Fall. It's less busy and just as warm and nice!
