About Explore 131 North
We Welcome You to Explore the US 131 North Corridor!
Explore 131 North is a grassroots collaboration project spearheaded by local government and community leaders along the US-131 corridor, including Cadillac, Manton, Fife Lake, Kalkaska, Mancelona, Boyne Valley, Walloon Lake, and Petoskey.
The corridor is highly traveled and communities are situated in visible locations, but access to the great outdoors is only minutes away. Small towns and scenic vistas along the corridor evoke a sense of freedom and rural comforts, and a relaxing respite from the hustle of everyday life. Business and travel opportunities are affordable and convenient, which appeals to investors, professionals, families and tourists seeking a safe, comfortable, and relaxing lifestyle or home-away-from-home.
Why Bring It North?
Affordable living, commercial and residential properties ready for redevelopment, as well as reinvestments into our local infrastructure are a driving force behind the recent pilgrimage North!
Our varied trail systems and waterways are well marked and maintained through all four seasons. With an abundance of inland lakes and rivers you will find many hidden gems along the way!
