Shopping, dining, festivals, and more—Empire offers something for everyone from families to couples and solo adventurers.
Empire, at the heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, is an outdoor adventure paradise with a wide variety of recreational opportunities and outfitters ready to help.
From asparagus and anchors to hops and snowmobiles, we love throwing a good party.
Join us for our Annual Celebration of Asparagus in Downtown Empire!
Start the celebration of Asparagus with a 5km fun run/walk!
