Visit Northern Michigan

Graying, Michigan is called the "Heart of the North". If you've been here you know why. Beyond being centrally located in Northern Michigan, where the state highways and byways connect, and where some of the best fly fishing in the country happens, the people of our great community have a little different perspective on life. We love our town, our neighbors, and most importantly our rivers. Recreation abounds in this area. There's never a shortage of fun things to do here so please come see us and get out and enjoy it all.

We're happy to offer you any information you need to assist you on your prowl of the area. You can call, email, write or stop in the shop for a visit. In the mean time here is a link to the Grayling Area Visitors Bereau.
