Benzie County is geographically the smallest county in Michigan. Its western border consists of 60 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline including Point Betsie Lighthouse, one of the most photographed lighthouses in Michigan. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and unspoiled bluffs in Benzie County contribute- to the natural beauty of the area. The county’s 57 lakes and miles of scenic rivers provides the county with access to canoeing, boating, and charter fishing. The city of Frankfort and the villages of Honor, Beulah, Benzonia, Elberta, Thompsonville and Lake Ann comprise this community whose chief industries are tourism and farming.
