    Boyne City Reviews

    2 reviews
    Boyne City is a cute town located in Northern Michigan's Lower Peninsula. Downtown is only 13 minutes away from the lower peninsulas most popular ski resort, Boyne Mountain. If you chose to drive another forty-five minutes north you will find yourself next to two separate popular ski resorts, Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands. Boyne City is a great location to start a new family with a small, and true hometown feel. From skiing and snowboarding in the winter, to bathing on the many beaches surrounding town in the summer, there is no other place that can feel like a million miles away just outside of your doorstep.
    Review Boyne City
    beautiful town, and really nice community. A bit too far from any large cities, but the land around it makes up for it. Beautiful lake on the edge of the town, and new biking trails between the city parks.
