Michigan lake named America’s second best; it isn’t Great
Michigan’s Lake Charlevoix is America’s second best lake, according to a USAToday poll.
And it’s not even a Great one.
Actually, the five Great Lakes were exempt from the contest that was meant to “spotlight some of the USA’s smaller, less famous summer getaways.”
Hmmm…then how did a hotspot like Lake Tahoe garner first?
Editors of five regional travel magazines were each asked to nominate three lakes for readers to vote on.
Here’s what Midwest Living’s Kendra Williams said in her nomination of Lake Charlevoix: “Just east of Lake Michigan, inland Lake Charlevoix offers an idyllic getaway with Boyne City as its artsy, laid-back anchor. Local gallery Freshwater Studio holds concert nights and a summer festival to promote the fledgling SoBo arts district.”
The publication also reported “strong support for Alabama’s Lake Martin, Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks and North Carolina’s Lake Lure plus a sizeable number of votes for New York’s Blue Mountain Lake, New Hampshire’s Newfound Lake and Washington’s Crescent Lake.”
What do you think Echo readers? Is Lake Charlevoix the best non-Great Lake in the Great Lakes region?
