Located in the exact center of Northern Michigan on the 45th parallel, Gaylord literally offers something for everyone. Known as Michigan's Alpine Village, Gaylord is the heart of Northern Michigan. While our little town continues to grow, we still maintain such a wonderful small town feel. Local and family owned businesses line our main street where you'll always be greeted with a smile and that famous Gaylord hospitality. While we are well known for our golf industry, there are many treasures that our "Alpine Village" has to offer. They all start with a walk through our beautiful downtown area.
