About Our Community

Downtown Manistee, MichiganManistee County and its 26,000 residents live in the heart of northern Michigan's natural beauty. It is the gateway to the popular M-22 Scenic Highway, voted Best Scenic Autumn Drive by USA Today. From its dune-filled coastline to woods to rivers, there is a lot to explore in Manistee County, including 10 charming communities.
