Living in Southwest Michigan, we take for granted how close we are to Lake Michigan and how easy a trip to the lake shore can be. One of our favorite getaway spots is St Joseph.

The city's tourism agency, St. Joe Today, once used these hand puppets to share the magic of St. Joe with the rest of the world.

The puppetry and song are the work of local entertainers Mike and Cathy Talbot who regularly perform around town and have produced a John Denver tribute show.

Watch the video and not only with you be ready for a trip to St Joe to see Silver Beach and the shopping along State Street, but you'll have the song stuck in your head for the rest of the day, "Come on down to St. Joe Today, Today, Today..."
