The small village of Empire, Michigan has a lot to boast about, from its beautiful beach to its status as the capital of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  MyNorth videographer Kris Riley took a whirlwind tour of the idyllic Northern Michigan town and vacation destination, capturing its quaint downtown storefronts, Up North outdoor scenery, Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail and other nearby attractions.
