However, an article in the July 26th issue of USA Weekend.com mentions that many people in their fifties are purchasing their perfect retirement home. This article ranked Traverse City, Michigan #4 in The Top 5 Places to Retire.

Beautiful lakes and rivers to buy your dream retirement home, as well as a plethora of things to do and see. There are many festivals and art walks each year.

Take dance lessons at the Old Art Building or visit the wineries to learn more about local wine and how it is made. the list of things to do is much to long to list!

Consider The Manistee....Seriously

We recently sold the adjacent property to this spectacular estate. The buyer had a cabin on The AuSable Holy Water for five years, but was looking for a higher degree of privacy for his family. In the first two weeks, he caught 6 brown trout over 20". I asked him when the last time was that he caught a 20" trout in front of his place on The AuSable and the answer was never. The largest trout he had taken in five years was a 16" brown. This isn't to say that The AuSable is not a fantastic river. It's definitely earned it's reputation among the finest dry fly trout rivers in The Eastern United States. I only mention it because some people overlook just how good The Manistee can be, especially when it comes to the potential to grow truly trophy trout. If you're looking for premium riverfront and have your heart set on The AuSable, you may want to broaden the search to include The Manistee. This is just one great example of what you might find.
