Manistee is located on the shores of Lake Michigan in the northwestern lower peninsula of Michigan, about 65 miles south of Traverse City. Manistee offers small town charm with beautiful beaches, great fishing, and the Manistee National Forest. For vacationers Manistee has a lot to offer but it may be more notable for what it doesn't: large crowds, high prices, heavy traffic and tacky tourist traps.

Get in





Shop downtown on River Street at the many boutique stores, department store, or antique stores.


Local eats include the Tuscan Grille for Italian food, The Glenwood north of Manistee overlooking Portage Lake and River Street Station for good pub grub.

Chain restaurants in Manistee include Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and A&W.


There are many bars in Manistee, ranging from River Street Station to neighborhood pubs such as McManigal's and Stu's. Those are just three of over ten bars in and near Manistee.
