Lake Michigan waves crash along the sandy shores of Empire Beach, inviting locals and Northern Michigan vacation-goers to embrace beautiful blues lined with whitecaps. With dunes full of sand not too far down the shore, children exclaiming with delight as they feel water tickling their toes, and the sun hitting your skin in just the right way … it’s a type of essence we daydream about and can’t wait to experience again as soon as we possibly can.

Well, sometimes when we can’t be there in person, the next best thing is a little #VideoVacation. Take in the sights of Leelanau County’s village-owned Empire Beach with this MyNorth Media video. And don’t worry. We know you’ll be there to visit soon!
