Historic Trolley Tours
Imagine stepping back to a time when you would hear the sound of horses’ hooves clip-clopping down the cobblestone streets of Manistee as you board a street car at the station in your neighborhood to go downtown for the evening. This was a regular occurrence experienced by many residents and visitors to Manistee, day in and day out. Manistee's street car system was an elaborate network of rails that ran people to and from their destinations for years until the automobile ultimately forced the street car to cease operations. Take a tour of all of the historic Manistee sights aboard this piece of history. You will see our beaches, State Park and many of our National Historic Register sites. Here is a map to the pick-up/drop-off locations.
