Michigan’s Other Great Lakes blog – Sentimental Journey

Making memories at Higgins Lake

Feeling nostalgic today. Another summer season is quickly winding down – our greatest treasures (our children) are soon returning to school, leaves have tinges of color and my personal favorite, apples are nearly ready for picking.

Quite a few requests come in from vacationers from the past wanting to know if they places they stayed at are still around. I do not have an answer for many of them – but a drive around the lakes indicates that they have been replaced by private homes/condos, upgraded and look somewhat different, or have been removed. Have some fun – come check them out for yourself.
Make a Sentimental Journey to Higgins Lake, Houghton Lake and Lake St. Helen “to renew old memories.”
A drive around the lakes also indicates how much has not changed. This has been a glorious summer – lots of time spent on the beaches, superb fishing, fabulous sunsets – everything that makes Michigan’s Other Great Lakes a haven for vacationers.
When was your last Sentimental Journey to Roscommon County? Do not think of it as your “destination” but as your “landing point” – stay and enjoy the beauty, and then make a day trip to explore the rest of northern Michigan from here.
Share your memories with us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/hl.a.tourism/ or email me and I will share them for you – info@visithoughtonlake.com.
