This is a beautiful boardwalk that you can go at your own pace or determine how far you want to go. I love it and take advantage as much as I can when I get the time.

Just a short walk to the beach, I didn't hear road/town noise. Just the breeze, waves & gulls with a lighthouse near. Ah.....

Easy walking path with lake views and lighthouse views. Even though it was raining, the walkway was clean and free from debris. Road noise from Hwy 2 was minimal.

The boardwalk gives views of the breakwater light at Manistique. Easy viewing from parking lot or quick walk on boardwalk. Just off the highway right in town.

Nice walk after milkshakes from Dairy Kream! About 3 different parking/access areas some with restrooms. Bring lots of OFF or walk in middle of day (which is what the locals do)! Good little stroll out to the Manistique Lighthouse (retired/automated now).

We only walked a short while, but enjoyed it immensely. The view of the bay is gorgeous and the boardwalk was well maintained. I would definitely return again when the bugs are gone!

We took a stroll down the boardwalk. There are great views of Lake Michigan and a beautiful lighthouse. It is an easy walk and can be accessed easily from US-2.

Had a great weekend in Manistique, just saw a new place opening called Blue mystique. It's a kayak, paddle board and bike rental place. It's about time! Does anyone know if there's a website? Can't wait to come back this summer and try it out!

Take a walk along the shoreline without getting your shoes full of sand: you can do this on the nearly 2 miles long boardwalk with the lake on the one side and the view of the lighthouse (depending which way you go) and the highway...More
