So when I tried to think of places that I would love to see one more time, I thought of Bear Lake. It is still the tiny town that it was, almost like time stood still. Most times "going back" is such a disappointment because things have changed so much. I had a vision in my mind of what I remembered and I was apprehensive that my "child's" memory was not accurate. But as it turned out, I was absolutely thrilled to find my memory was "spot on" and the little town of Bear Lake was the same. We really had a very nice stay

Checked off my wishlist.
When I was a small child and lived in Ohio, our family vacation many times took us to Bear Lake Michigan. As an adult, I have thought about those vacations and how much fun I had with my sister and cousins. We always rented a cottage right on the lake. The water was shallow for a long way out and usually pretty warm by mid-summer. You could see through the clear water to the white sandy bottom and watch minnows flitting in every direction.
