Every Day Living is Excellent in Manistee

Lighthouse in ManisteeManistee is surrounded by the Manistee National Forest, three Lake Michigan harbors, 25 miles of sandy Lake Michigan shoreline, and 80 miles of the North Country Trail. With four distinct and equally wonderful seasons, residents keep their beach sandals, hiking boots, and snowshoes handy.

About the Community

Manistee is a charming community of 6,100 that hugs Lake Michigan’s shoreline of coastal dunes. The Victorian Port City of Manistee features a downtown district with shopping, dining, and entertainment. With the Historic Vogue Theatre, the Ramsdell Theatre (where James Earl Jones got his start), numerous galleries, and frequent music events, Manistee has a vibrant arts and cultural community.

The Manistee community embraces every reason to celebrate throughout the year. During October, the S.S. Milwaukee, a 77-year old Great Lakes ship permanently moored in Manistee, is open for tours and transforms into a Ghost Ship. The annual Victorian Sleighbell Parade and old Christmas Weekend each December will transport you to another time.
