Enjoyed a lovely walk along the board walk, well kept and beautiful view of the sunset. Easy walk, parking closer and right in the heart of Manistique. Fourth of July has a nice fireworks show.

This is a very scenic walk right along Lake Michigan in Manistique. I have walked it many times and it is part of the 5k/10k Folkfest run/walk every year.

don't sit in your hotel room. Get out and enjoy a lovely walk along the lake michigan shoreline. A great place to see sun rises, moon rises and sunsets. Wander out on the breakwall to get a glimpse of manistique from the water's perspective.

The water is so pretty and the boardwalk is nice. It was too cold when we were there but will go back just to walk it.

I took my 10 year old granddaughter to the boardwalk. It was amazing. It was a little windy, so it wasn't busy at all. I recommend this for children!! We loved the lighthouse and everything was so clean and pretty.

This boardwalk is very nice and well kept. It was kind of cold when we were there so it was not very busy. We got up in the morning, got some coffee, and went out on the boardwalk to see the sunrise. It was beautiful. I would like to go back and take more time and walk all the way... More

It is obvious that the city of Manistique takes pride in their board/river walk. It looks to be enjoyed by all ages. We really enjoyed the nice walking path and the beauty and sounds of the ever-changing water.

At first I was a little weary on taking my two smaller children down the path to the lighthouse but it does widen up and we are glad we did end up making it all the way to the lighthouse both my boys enjoyed it and thought it was really cool as well as I!! We definitely recommend!

We were able to walk out our motel and go across the street to the boardwalk. Beautiful view of the lake. It is a couple miles long. We only did a mile of it.
