Spread out on the beach this summer!

May 20th, 2021

The record-shattering high water levels have dropped in all of the Great Lakes. Lake Ontario dropped 28 inches, Lakes Huron and Michigan — which are connected and have the same level — declined 14 inches Lake Erie fell 17 inches, and Lake Superior 6 inches.

Low humidity and sunny skies this winter boosted evaporation. The lakes also had relatively little ice cover due to milder and drier weather from November through April and well-below normal snowfall. Although lake levels usually rise in spring and summer, the rise is late this year and won’t be as dramatic as during the past two years.

Break out the beach chairs and umbrellas! We be beachin.

Plan your getaway in a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, or mini-suite cottage featuring a comfortable living room, kitchenette, and bathroom complete with all the amenities. Go to FireflyResort.com or call (269) 469-0245 to book your summer getaway at Firefly Resort!

Bridgeman Aquatic Center

April 16th, 2021

The weather is warming up, but it’s still a month or two before we can run down the beach stairs and dive headlong into that gorgeous clean fresh Lake Michigan water.  But if you need some swimming during your Firefly stay, try the Bridgeman Aquatic Center. The Center, only 15 minutes down Red Arrow Highway, offers lap swimming for adults as well as family recreation swim available throughout the week. Pull out the bathing suits and hit the pool!

For information, see AQUATIC CENTER (bridgmanschools.com)
Bridgman Aquatic Center, 9964 Gast Road, Bridgman. (269) 466-0236

Bonus Lake Michigan fact about Bridgman: In the 1940s, Bridgman’s water wells were going dry as the town grew. Since Lake Michigan was only a mile away, the town adopted a lake water system because, although the lake water had to be treated, the supply was guaranteed!

Stay in one of our cozy cottages and make a weekend of it! We have one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and mini-suite cottages. Call us at (269) 469-0245 to book your next getaway!

Did you know…

Union Pier, our beloved hamlet, is getting a facelift in 2021! Expect a new streetscape, with new sidewalks, planters, trees, and other plantings. Paved storefront patios will feature benches and be screened from Red Arrow Highway with landscaping.

The intersection of Union Pier Road and Red Arrow Highway also will be repaved and redesigned, with added turn lanes for easier business access. Pedestrians can use an activated crossing signal that flashes bright yellow lights to safely cross the highway.

And the first section of a ten-foot-wide non-motorized pathway will be built along the southwest corner of the highway and Union Pier Road. See gowightman.com for more information.
