Harrisville, Michigan

cabinHarrisville is the kind of small town anyone wants to visit and come back to because it's about as far from the "hurry-up-and-let-me-take-your-money-big-city-developing-into-new-rural-areas" as you can get. It's northeast Michigan's best kept secret. It's the county seat for Alcona County, a county with more forest than asphalt, a population of 10,000 and only one traffic light.

What Harrisville doesn't have is fast food restaurants, big hotel chains, or rubber-stamped trinket stores. What it does have is miles of sandy Lake Huron shoreline, breathtaking views, quiet streets, truly interesting antique and gift shops, and an unhurried atmosphere.

It has also been spared from anxious and obnoxious development. One hundred years ago Harrisville's population was about 375. Today, Harrisville's population is about 500. When coming to Harrisville, you'll find friendly people who enjoy an frenzy-free lifestyle. Coming back you'll find that again; and again; and again. Come to Harrisville, relax and get comfortable. Come back to Harrisville, you'll be remembered.
