Interlochen Michigan

interochenInterlochen is nestled in Grand Traverse County in Northern Lower Michigan, approxiamiatly 12 miles south and west of Traverse City. The county is located on the 45th parallel, being halfway between the Equator and the North Pole. Okay, what does that mean? It means it is cold in the winter and warm in the summer.

Interlochen is a wooded community anchored by two Michigan lakes, Green Lake and Duck Lake. It is also home to the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Founded in 1928 as a summer music camp, it has evolved into a school known worldwide for music, arts, public radio station and yes, itís summer camp is still in existence and is as popular as ever.

Interlochen has a number of interesting places to visit shop and, of course, eat. You may want to try the Hofbrau, a rustic restaurant with that Up North feel. When visiting the area, be sure to visit the Interlochen Center for the Arts to get their schedule of summer of events, and then be sure to take one in.
