Petoskey: A resort town of endless charm.

Petoskey: A resort town of endless charm.

Fascinating History. Natural Beauty.

Petoskey is not just a charming Northern Michigan lakeside resort community. It’s also the name of a great Odawa Indian Chief and, translated into English, means “rays of the rising sun.” Vacationers come from far and wide to enjoy Petoskey’s famous “Million Dollar Sunsets” over Little Traverse Bay while combing the shores for Petoskey Stones, fossilized coral that predates the dinosaurs and is Michigan’s official state stone.

Extraordinary Sightseeing

Visitors love strolling through Petoskey's historic residential neighborhoods and browsing boutiques in its historic Gaslight District. The best views of Little Traverse Bay are found along the Little Traverse Wheelway, a 26-mile route that connects Charlevoix, Bay Harbor, Petoskey and Harbor Springs. And stargazers of every skill level can make the 30-minute drive to the Headlands International Dark Sky Park. It’s one of just eleven parks in the nation and sixteen in the world officially designated for its superior night sky viewing.

Outdoor Fun

There’s a little known gem located right in the heart of Petoskey. The 1.5-mile Bear River Valley Recreation Area offers opportunities for biking, hiking, walking, picnicking and even kayaking in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan’s only whitewater park. Also nearby are pristine golf courses, watersports and, in the wintertime, skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling—with miles of groomed snowmobile trails that lead right to the casino.
