Irish Hills, Michigan

Irish HillsThe Irish Hills were first named by the Irish immigrants who settled in the green, rolling hills after escaping the Potato Famine of 1846. The area was predominately farms and orchards until the 1920s when it became a popular tourist destination. The Irish Hills has more lakes than can be named on two hands. Devils and Round Lake, Loch Erin and Sand Lake are local favorites, and on a hot summer day are filled to the brim with all sorts of activity.

Hotels began to pop up along the road in the 1920s. It’s now designated the US-12 Heritage Trail, a historically significant road that runs from Detroit to Chicago.
