Michigan author Andy LaPointe will be signing copies of his book, “Up North Dream – The Guide to Moving to Northern Michigan” at the Traverse Bay Farms Elk Rapids store.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, individuals and families have left major cities and epicenters of the pandemic across America. Many seek a more relaxed and slower pace of life. This migration from cities to modern rural areas is supported by statistics published by the US Postal Service.

These government statistics track mail forwarding requests. The numbers suggest that people from more populated areas of Michigan and the east and west coasts of the United States are moving to modern rural communities.

You see, Mr. LaPointe and his wife moved to a modern rural community in northern Michigan from Taylor, a suburb of Detroit. According to the author, Mr. LaPointe, “My wife and I looked at the big map of the United States and wondered where we wanted to move. After looking at a few different areas, we decided to move to Northern Michigan to enjoy the Northern Michigan lifestyle.

What is the Northern Michigan way of life like?

According to Mr. LaPointe, his definition of the Northerh Michigan way of life, “It’s the ability to enjoy all the conveniences of modern life while living in harmony with Mother Nature.”

If that’s what you want too, Northern Michigan is for you!

According to Andy LaPointe, “Up North Michigan doesn’t officially exist on any map, but it does. Perhaps it’s the sense of tranquility one experiences walking through streets lined with towering oak trees, the promise of a rhythm of life slower pace and friendly greetings from neighbors. Up North is more than tourist shops, fudge and cherries. Up North is a state of mind. It’s a place to play golf, ski the tracks, hitting the trails, enjoying the laughter of family and friends, forgetting the stresses of the world and losing yourself in the serenity of watching the sun go down over the western horizon.You know what I’m talking about…the sunset bright orange and flamboyant yellow!”
