Just 50 miles from Traverse City and Lake Michigan, Cadillac offers vacation living all year long. Lake Cadillac is the crown jewel of our community's natural resources. Throughout Cadillac's history, the lake has provided a source of economic vitality for the community. Early on, the lumber industry utilized the lake to move raw materials. Today, Lake Cadillac helps sustain a thriving tourism industry in Cadillac. People come to the community year-round to enjoy activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking and canoeing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and more!
