Frankfort

The 2009 renovation of The Garden, Frankfort's 1923 art deco theater -- with first-run, Indy and foreign cinema, plus an annual film festival in October -- is one more spark that's igniting the downtown revival of this historic port city. Frankfort is the gateway to the Sleeping Dunes National Lakeshore, famed for its two vintage lighthouses, sport fishing and mineral springs on Betsie Bay, on which the town sits. New restaurants and boutiques now mingle with classic storefronts, and the dynamic Crystal Lake Art Center's upcoming move to the former U.S. Coast Guard Station on Betsie Bay promises excellent year-round visual and performing-arts programming.
