Attributes such as; Lake Michigan, with a new $30 Million boat harbor, 2 historical Lighthouses, long scenic piers, fishing charters and a thriving boating community. Unique features that create a special place! The historic streetcar system, which takes over 65,000 riders per year thru-out the downtown, and connects the lakefront to the Metra rail line. The metra Station serves Chicago and the north shore of Illinois. The small, relatively condensed downtown has a rich & colorful history.
