Be careful what you promise your significant-other relative to accomodations or exquisite dining. There are places to eat in Ludington and Pentwater (just south of Ludington on the big lake) but this is a pretty sleepy place until summer rolls along. Don't get me wrong... there is great stuff, you just have to work a little harder this early in the season. If you guys are riding GS's et al, you might just stay in Ludington and drive to the staging area in the AM. Hope you guys can make it. It a great weekend !
