The Great Lakes lifestyle is a year-round adventure. Our breathtaking region offers four distinct seasons, and each one has a voice that calls us to celebrate life: skis' cutting a perfect line through a fresh blanket of winter snow, the spring birds' singing on the links and along the trails, the soothing rhythm of summer waves as they rush toward the shore, a fall fire that crackles as we sip cider from the mill. Great Lakes Living is more than just activities. It's the bond we share with our families, our friends and our community.
Our mission here at Great Lakes Living is to provide quality apparel at reasonable prices. We trust that our products reflect the pride we all share in the Great Lakes region and help you promote it while you are Great Lakes Living through every wonderful season.

An agent with Michigan Community Insurance, Mark spend his days (and a lot of evenings, actually) protecting the world from the aftermath of mishap, malady and disaster. Otherwise, he's Great Lakes Living it up with his family. During the summer, he hits the links while his wife trains for Detroit's international half marathon. (Kim doesn't golf, and Mark's marathon prep consists of mapping out the best coney spots along the course to hit while he cheers her to the finish. It's a great partnership.) Winter and spring mean coaching their daughter, Sydney, who plays varsity basketball and soccer for Bethany Christian School in Troy. And in the fall? He's watching Michigan football with their son, Joe. Go, Blue!
