On behalf of our membership and the entire
community, the Elk Rapids Area Chamber of
Commerce welcomes you to our unique section
of northern Michigan! With miles of shoreline and
incredible natural beauty, the Elk Rapids area is the
perfect location for a day trip, weekend getaway,
extended family vacation, or permanent stay.
This annual visitor's guidebook is published by
the Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with our
members to provide you with all the information you
need to plan your trip and make the most of your
time here with us.
Area business and industrial entities are driven to help develop
jobs and foster economic growth for our community. Service clubs,
organizations, and churches take an active leadership role in the
community while also providing a variety of opportunities to volunteer. The
local government is dedicated to service and progress. Youth and family
leisure time activities abound.
All of these different segments work together to make the Elk Rapids
area a great place to live, work, and play. The Elk Rapids Area Chamber
of Commerce is your window to that community. Visit us at 305 US 31
