Ludington is located on the west-central coast of Lake Michigan, near Big Sauble Point. It is unique because it is one of the few cities on Lake Michigan that provides car ferry service to the state of Wisconsin. Also, due to Ludington's location on the shoreline of Lake Michigan, and its' nearby accessibility to Big Sauble Point and the Pere Marquette River, it consistently remains one of the most popular tourist spots in the state. Ludington State Park is located here and is often called "Queen of Michigan's Parks." It features awe-inspiring sand dunes and virgin forests, miles of sandy beach, 14 miles of hiking and biking trails and three campgrounds. Fishing charters are available in Ludington, as well as canoe and kayak rentals, watercraft and boat rentals - even dune buggy rides. There are over 50 miles of trails available for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, and the Lake Michigan Recreation Area, Nordhouse Dunes and the Manistee National Forest are all just minutes away. Ludington also has a number of other attractions that are unique to this area. One is a walking tour of the town to view the many murals that depict the history, flora and fauna of the area. Other points of interest include the Big Sable Point Lighthouse and Historic White Pine Village, which is a collection of 21 buildings that depict small-town life in Michigan during the late 1800s and beyond. The city of Ludington also offers a wide range of lodging facilities and fine dining, making your stay here a comfortable and pleasurable one.

Ludington Weather & Climate

Central Michigan , along the shores of Lake Huron, experiences four seasons with warm summers and cold winters. The Great Lakes help cool the hot days of summer and warm the cold winds of winter, giving Michigan a milder climate than some of the other Midwestern and north central states. Summer precipitation comes in the form of showers and thunderstorms. Tornadoes are not that common because Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, and sees less of this activity than other parts of the country, in part due to the cold water of the surrounding lakes during the spring and summer months. The Great Lakes also act as a giant "heat sink," and is a natural humidifier, and this causes an increase in the moisture content in the air in winter, creating heavier snowfalls in some areas. The amount of snowfall, however, varies greatly from year to year.
