It’ll probably save some driving time around Lake Charlevoix, but the real reason to slip your car onto the Ironton Ferry is the short sweet ride across the narrows of the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix—a ride that’s been a tradition up here since 1876. The Ironton operates daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fares: $3.25 per car, 50 cents per person (without vehicle or bicycle), $1 with bicycle. Find it on M-66 four miles south of Charlevoix. 10231 FERRY RD, 231-237-3500.
