Betsie Bay

Stop by Petals and Perks for Waffles and Coffee

Enjoy a fantastic waffle and expertly crafted espresso in the cozy chairs with your sweetheart. Browse the trinkets, jewelry, artwork and gifts, or score a bouquet. 

From there, stroll through all of downtown Frankfort and head to the beach!

Peek into the shops, take in the fresh lake breeze...

Once you reach the beach, you see Frankfort's signature Pier and Lighthouse

Get the photo of a lifetime from the lighthouse if the waves are calm! This is a perfect spot to steal that kiss! 

Stop By Stormcloud Brewing for a Snack

Surely, all that walking has worked up quite the appetite! Take a seat on the patio and enjoy a flight with a lovely charcuterie. Belgian inspired brews blessed with an abundance of local Northern Michigan hops! The menu is loaded with fantastic eats and the vibe is very laid back. 

Ride a bike around Betsie Bay!

The gorgeous Betsie Valley Bike Trail winds you around the bay to Elberta, and inland into the marshes and forest!
