This looks like such a fun place to visit! I love the second picture of the beach...there's something so beautiful about waves.

Dominique King

Sarah-Empire has such a great beach! I really love it when we're up there at the right time of year to see folks flying kites out on the beach-we've seen some really beautiful kites, and talented kite flyers can really make the kites do all sorts of cool tricks with the wind off of Lake Michigan.

Steve Davis

Love your posts. Small towns like this are just so interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Dominique King

Steve-I particularly like the fact that Empire has a pretty interesting history, and that the people there are so interested in preserving those stories.

Such a magical beautiful place. My grandfather Arlie McGee was born here in 1906. I have many fond memories as a child running along the shore. This began a life long love of nature for me!
