Dubbed the Victorian Port City and built by the lumber barons, scenic, small-town Manistee once was home to more millionaires per capita than any other town in the U.S., and their gingerbread architecture remains. Now it's a great town for tourism, 10 West Studios and Michigan's burgeoning film industry, the Little River Casino, energy and manufacturing. Follow downtown's curvy streets, where interesting eclectic shops and eateries wind along the Manistee River and huge freighters glide past. The Riverwalk takes you down to one of two of the town's gorgeous Lake Michigan beaches; the remodeled Blacker Airport makes getting to Manistee so much easier.
