"The Higgs" refers to either the town of Higgins Lake, Michigan, the lake itself, or any of the beaches surrounding the lake. It's a slang term employed by the locals, though the town and lake are a popular vacation destination due in part to the gorgeous water and two state parks. (South Higgins Lake State Park and North)
We're going to The Higgs this afternoon for a swim before the townies swarm in for the weekend.
My friend lives in The Higgs and I told her I'd pick her up on my way up to Grayling this afternoon.
The Higgs is so beautiful this time of year. Too bad the weather won't last long.
There's a party in The Higgs tonight - you down?
