Welcome to Winter in Cadillac!

  • Posted on

The beautiful snow this past week in Michigan reminds me of all the experiences Cadillac has to offer in the winter months. The “Up-North'' atmosphere in the Cadillac area is like a winter festival every weekend. The town is bustling with happy people bundled up and taking advantage of the unique experiences that so many people don’t get to enjoy unless they live in the northern Midwest.
