If you've chosen to drive the scenic Tunnel of Trees route, north out of Harbor Springs, you'll arrive in historic Cross Village...blink and you might miss it.
But here in this small town you'll find a history, rich in Ottawa and Chippewa culture. You'll find a "world famous" restaurant on a bluff above Lake Michigan, with garden dining that overlooks a lighthouse embedded horizon. Locals and visitors of neighboring towns head to Sturgeon Bay, an expanse of sandy beaches that is isolated from civilization. Test your biking or hiking skills out on the North Country Trail, winding through miles of natural wilderness. Feeling a little less adventurous? You can visit the art and culture centers downtown, while enjoying the rare views.
In 1885, "La Croix" became the town we now know as Cross Village, the crossroad between Harbor Springs and Mackinaw City, where a white cross stands as a beacon from the waters.
