    There are plenty of excellent waterways to explore in Montague. You could paddle around White Lake or explore the White River watershed, both of which are perfect for a day out on the water. Now if you don't have your own water equipment, don't worry! There are two great places that you can rent equipment from. If you're looking for a scenic float down the White River, there is no better place to go than Happy Mohawk Livery located on Fruitvale Rd. From there you can enjoy the gorgeous views down the White River by either canoeing, kayaking, tubing, or rafting. They offer plenty of options that are great for the entire family. You could also go to WaterDog Outfitters in downtown Montague. They offer many rental options and purchase options for the water and land. There is plenty to explore and wildlife to see while relaxing floating down the river or exploring the White Lake coastline. Happy floating everyone!

    For the biking enthusiasts out there you don't want to miss out on the Hart-Montague Trail State Park. This trail takes you up through some of the best West Michigan scenery. It is a 22 mile paved trail that goes from Montague to Hart, passing through Rothbury, New Era, Shelby, and Mears. Along the way you are going to pass tree farms and orchards of many kinds: cherries, peaches, apples, apricots, and plums. Once you are past all of the farms the trail starts to get winding and hilly, offering up spectacular views of the woody areas, with many picnic spots on viewing platforms to really take in all of these views. And if all of this idyllic and peaceful scenery wasn't enough, during the summer you can stop by the trailside dairy bar in New Era for some homemade ice cream! Once you've cooled off with some ice cream you can continue heading north on the trail where you will then go into Mears, another great stop with places for refueling with food and water, and also many great rest spots featuring more country vistas. The trail ends in Hart, but from there you can visit the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and LakeMichigan, where your adventure could really begin!

    Montague is brimming with fascinating history. A main figure in that history is Joseph Sadony, a legend in the White Lake area. Our own “philosopher-scientist”, the legends swirl around this man and stories abound. He did write a column for the Muskegon Chronicle for 30 years, and exchanged letters with some of the most famous thinkers in the world during his lifetime. The Muskegon Chronicle published a great article in 2013 (see link below), and more information can be found through the White Lake Historical Society.

    The Old Channel Inn is one of the most special spots in the wider Montague area. Sitting on the location that was once the Village of White River (1837), this restaurant serves up amazing food and is steeped in history. One of my favorite restaurants in the area, the comforting, almost rustic food is the perfect Sunday night meal. It is a bit of a drive down Old Channel Trail, but the scenery is worth it.

    I recently attended the Montague Farmer's Market and Artisan Market. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of either, a farmer's market is what is sounds like: a place where people come to sell goods, usually homegrown or homemade foods that you cannot find in supermarkets. An artisan market is very similar, but instead of foods, people usually homemade artwork or jewelry.

    Most cities lack both of these nowadays, and people usually go to super stores such as Mejier or Walmart for their shopping, but after a trip to the Montague Farmer's/Artisan Market, I may have to reconsider. They had a wide variety of goods to choose from, selling everything from homemade brownies to fresh apples. In the Artisan Market, they had local artists selling handcrafted jewelry and doing henna tattoos. If you live in the Muskegon/White Lake Area, make sure to keep an eye out for any upcoming events like these. And if you're looking for a place that holds such events, Montague may just be the perfect place for you.

    The Arts Council of White Lake is a wonderful advocate for the arts in our community, and one of their long-term projects is to install public art throughout Whitehall and Montague. Grab a map and take a walk or bike ride to see sailboat trees, a giant butterfly, artistic wind chimes, colorful metal flowers, and sculptural fish. Don't forget to look for our bike racks-- they are works of art, too.
