Betsie Valley Bike Trail starts across the street and wends its way through woods and rivers for 22 miles. Local shops offer kayak and motor scooter rentals, and there is golfing aplenty--including the nationally renowned Arcadia Bluffs. The Frankfort North Breakwater Lighthouse sets at the end of a pier at Lake Michigan Beach, providing a focal point for beautiful sunsets and a convenient location for fishermen and women of all ages on the pier with their poles. The historic Point Betsie Lighthouse is just minutes away and offers tours via their website. Nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers bike tours at four locations, and has 100 miles of hiking trails with many marked for cross-country skiing in winter.
