BLUE WATER ECONOMY 

Welcome to the Riviera of the Midwest!

The Muskegon Lakeshore is about balancing live-work-play, inspired by the region’s 27 lakes, 27 miles of Lake Michigan beach, and over 400 miles of rivers. The liquid assets in Muskegon County attract visitors alongside new and long-time residents. The Port of Muskegon connects businesses with the ability to ship goods and raw materials into or out of the area. As the largest deepwater port on Michigan’s west coast, it’s an important link to a global transportation system where 90 percent of all goods are moved by ship.

The port will welcome the Pearl Mist back in 2017 along with Victory Cruise Lines and the Lake Express, which is a high-speed ferry that takes passengers and cargo across Lake Michigan to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in two hours, spring through fall.
