About PetoskeyPetoskey is a resort center on Little Traverse Bay. On the bottom of the bay at a depth of 34 feet, an 11-foot figure of Christ serves as the Skin Divers' Shrine. Rock hounds crowd Petoskey State Park and Magnus Park in spring, sorting through winter's debris for Petoskey stones. The remains of an extinct coral that inhabited the shallow waters of 350 million years ago, the stones were designated Michigan's state stone in 1965.

Fishing in Little Traverse Bay and area rivers and lakes yields bass, blue gill, lake and rainbow trout, perch, salmon and walleye. A number of scenic drives can be enjoyed in the other seasons: The lakeshore routes along US 31 west through Charlevoix then south to Traverse City and SR 119 north through Harbor Springs to Cross Village are particularly enjoyable. Closer to town, US 131 and Walloon Lake Drive provide a pleasant loop.
