You’ll find the sleepy little town of Honor in a beautiful river valley in Benzie County, Michigan. This authentic small town is ideal for exploring the delights of nature in nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the clear waters of the Platte River.
The Cherrybowl Drive In is the only Drive-In theatre now left standing in Northern Michigan and is well worth a visit for a true retro small-town experience! After that you have easy access to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore where views of the lake and sand dunes are what make this place special. Take a canoe, kayak, or tube along the Platte River with different areas suitable for families with kids or more experienced boaters.
Platte Point Beach is a wonderful place to hang out for the day, cool off from your canoe ride, bring a picnic and stare in awe as the sun goes down on this beautiful part of the world.
Local winery, the St Ambrose Cellars makes a fantastic stop off if you’re heading to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Check out their homemade wine, mead, beer and cider and sip as you listen to the live band.
August is the month to be here if you want to catch town buzzing with life for the National Coho Festival, a celebration honoring the Coho salmon run. This river was where Salmon fishing first began in Michigan.
