Sleeping Bear Dunes

  1. Celebrating Our Love of Mother Earth

    If Christmas is our favorite holiday at Cherry Republic, Earth Day is a close second. Because as much as we love brightening peoples' spirits with ruby red morsels of joy, we also love caring for our planet. In fact one of our Core Values is "LIFE: We value and appreciate Northern Michigan and cherries." That's why we've given more than...
  2. Sutherland's Leaf Day Adventure

    Sutherland's Leaf Day Adventure
    Due to the thunderstorm, we started out on our third annual Leaf Day hike a little later than usual. The boys wanted to hike the dunes, so my goal was to hit the most remote and difficult to get to spots on the dunes with this special day off from work and school.
  3. Hide and Seek 2016

    Hide and Seek 2016
    Here is (mostly) everything you need to know to win products and have a great morning of fun playing hide and seek with Cherry Republic: Delivery teams leave at 9 am from the Cherry Factory in Empire. Look for groups wearing gray CR staff “Cherry is my Jam” t-shirts. At 11 am, all teams will be out making deliveries so that is the best chance to capture some goodies. All you have to do is walk up to them and say, “I’m intercepting your hide and seek delivery.”

    2016 Glen Arbor Area Winter
    Laura Ann Johnson, Cherry Republic’s marketing manager to a few hours and snapped a few photos of all the fresh snow around Glen Arbor on Tuesday morning. Click here for a short blog of her best photos. Above is the a favorite angle of the Crystal River at the Dunn's Farm Rd culvert.
  5. Cherry Republic's Leaf Day

    Cherry Republic's Leaf Day
    Leaf Day was created by Cherry Republic to celebrate the amazing colors of fall, and to take a day to reflect or enjoy the outdoors in the last of our good weather. We are all so busy all summer and into fall that we don’t often find time to just enjoy the outdoors. Leaf Day will allow us to do so during the most beautiful time of year in Northern Michigan.
  6. The Great Bay to Bay Trail-Breaking

    The Great Bay to Bay Trail-Breaking
    A new hiking trail is coming to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It's called the Bay to Bay Trail, and it will run the length of the park, from Platte Bay at the south end to Good Harbor Bay at the north end. We're trying to raise money to help it happen!
  7. Escape the Fourth of July Crowds in Northern Michigan

    Escape the Fourth of July Crowds in Northern Michigan
    The Fourth of July weekend is one of the busiest weekends all summer in northern Michigan. Visitors from around the country flood the soft beaches, crystal blue waters, and energized towns to celebrate American freedom. Sometimes, just sometimes, though, the crowds can be a little overwhelming so we asked some locals what their secret plans were for Independence Day.
  8. Riding the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail

    Riding the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail
    The newly opened section of the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail connecting the Dune Climb with Empire to the south is even more beautiful than the original section. It winds its way through hillier terrain and denser forest, but steep climbs are almost immediately rewarded by swift descents through shady glades. We took a leisurely ride along it the moment we heard it was open. Here's what we made of the new five and half miles of trail.
  9. Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive

    Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive
    No list of northern Michigan scenery is complete without a mention of Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. Situated between Glen Arbor and Empire it offers spectacular views, firstly through forest and across Glen Lake, and then over the dunes and out across Lake Michigan.
  10. Surfing in Northern Michigan

    Surfing in Northern Michigan
    After mid-October, the winds whipping off Lake Michigan really start to pick up. For the adventurous few who surf the Great Lakes, these gales create a unique playground. Dressed in thick wetsuits with hoods, boots, and gloves to insulate from the fierce cold, these diehards brave 30-knot winds and icicles on their eyebrows. The prize is waves that are head-high or even larger.
