A stone’s throw from the pristine Platte River, and gateway the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the village of Honor was named Michigan’s top outdoor town by Sports Afield Magazine in 1999. Today, it is enjoying a revitalization that is happening throughout the Northern Michigan area.
In the past few years, new businesses have opened, some have relocated, old buildings have been removed, a new park with access to the Platte River is being created by the Honor Area Restoration Project or H.A.R.P., the National Coho Festival is being revived, new housing is in the works and more.
Honor is known as the “Coho Capitol,” where Coho Salmon were first introduced in 1966 into the river, and each year they return to spawn at the Platte River State Fish Hatchery, just outside the village limits. The National Coho Salmon Festival is held each August to celebrate the regions natural beauty and resources.
