I love Ludington's beautiful views and throughout summer there is an abundance of activities that are both family friendly and adult only. The library always has great things for minors to do and Ludington is a music rich community. There are multiple beaches to visit, but the tourists all end up at Stearns beach so it's vital to get to know some of the locals and find their secret spots!

Ludington, Michigan gives off a warm and welcoming feel to all tourists and residents who live here. With beautiful sunsets on the miles of beach, one of the best state parks in Michigan, a downtown full of small businesses to visit, and constant community events, there's always something to do here! If for some reason you feel like leaving town for a day, we have the S.S. Badger that travels to Milwaukee, Wisconsin every day during the summer months. Another perk of living here is that crime rate is extremely low, therefore you never have to be worried while out exploring the town. Prices for housing, goods, and gas are also relatively well-priced compared with national averages and are never more than ten minutes from any location in Ludington. Job opening are always popping up too with new businesses coming to town. If one is wondering about the quality of schooling, Ludington is a great place to go. Ludington High School is ranked in the top 8% of the nation as far as test scores are concerned. Whether you're here for vacation, or you live here year-around, Ludington truly is a place one must see.
Fun-filled town right on Lake Michigan! There is a beautiful state park where many spend most of their time. Very safe and welcoming. A must see tourism stop if exploring West Michigan!
