Catch Northwest Michigan's Second Wave

You can feel the energy up and down our coast: It's upbeat, stimulating, exhilarating.

That's what Northwest Michigan's Second Wave is all about.

We're a weekly web magazine with a fresh narrative about the people, companies and industries that are reshaping the communities along Lake Michigan's coastline, moving them forward, making them sustainable, dynamic places that we dream about.

Our mission is yours, too: To spark bright conversations about smart growth and development by showcasing the region's many riches -- the artistic forces, the innovators, the diverse communities and stunning landscapes that stretch from Ludington up to the Mackinac Bridge. We're here to talk about repairing and repurposing what's broken and preserving what's not.

Every Tuesday we'll deliver intelligent, sometimes edgy, always engaging journalism that offers untapped angles and insights about fascinating people, interesting businesses and forward-thinking concepts like New Urbanism, adaptive reuse, green building and living -- plus amazing images of all the intriguing reasons that northwest Michigan keeps attracting national attention. Hey -- we just call this gorgeous place Up North.

Let us know how you like our new webmag -- and tell us about the great things that are happening in your coastal community by sending Managing Editor Patty LaNoue Stearns an email.
