Eagle Harbor Michigan

The coast of the Keweenaw is the Maine of the Midwest according to some guides.
It is very lovely and scenic. The small village of Eagle Harbor Michigan is a postcard.
The lighthouse and harbor have a New England feel to it. You think I could spend a week here just relaxing,reading and hiking. If your lucky like we were you get the nice weather very late in the season. The local history is very rich and the local historical society does a great job telling it. Not a single Inn or restaurant disappointed us. Locals were more then friendly and very good at their jobs. I can't recall better service even for lunch. It's a quieter and slower pace of course due to the remote area. The summer crowds if any are gone in the early fall. Hiking trails abound and mountain top views are impressive. More to follow!
