Street in town
The southern gateway to Up North’s golden coast, the petite village of Pentwater is a genteel gem worthy of its welcome post. Here, tidy post-Civil War-era cottages frame strollable neighborhood lanes, window boxes burst with flowers, and the sweetest main street—candy shop, kite shop and wine shop included—inspire daylong wanders.
Ease on down the rows of enchanting shops, art galleries and eateries to the clanking masts of sailboats nestled in Snug Harbor. Putter up the canal to the dune-backed shores of Charles Mears State Park. Or just sprawl out by the gazebo on the Village Green and watch the boats go by. Anywhere here, you’re welcome.
