This weekend is going to be fun and exciting in Ludington, Michigan. Ludington is celebrating their sesquicentennial this year and they are throwing a street party like no other. Do you have time to make the drive north this weekend?

According to Ludington150:

Love Ludington Weekend is the kick-off to Summer and the celebration of Ludington’s 150th anniversary. Complete with a street party, Lakestride Half Marathon, 10k & 5k, House of Flavors 75th Anniversary World Record Attempt, the SS Badger’s 70th Anniversary Birthday Bash and historic home and B&B tours, it is a must see and do weekend in Ludington!

I have visited Ludington a lot. At one point my ex-wife and I owned a travel trailer and we kept it in Ludington at a seasonal campsite. It was nice to have a location to be able to go to anytime we wanted and be able to camp in our travel trailer. We had so many good times and I am certain that you will experience the same.

If crowds aren't your thing and you want to try some good local food make sure you try Bortells. They have the freshest fish you can get and it is delicious.
