  • Be careful and have a great time. Crowded on weekends. Beautiful park and very family oriented. Great place to check out exotic dune buggy and first generation Ford Broncos.  more »
  • This was on our bucket list. Worth the $, but make sure you make a reservation as July and August will get busier!  more »
  • If you don't know where to go for the fourth of July then this is the place! Thunder by the bay give you a spectacular fireworks performance and the smooth sand keeps you cool at night. There are many hills you can just roll or run off of. This place is amazing. Parking might be the only problem but it's not surprise because it's a large tourist attraction.
  • A cute little beach on Silver Lake close to Lake Michigan. Just be prepared to climb some intense dunes to get to the water. They have "stairs" that leads to the first dune, however those stairs are now covered in sand which made the first climb perhaps the most intense climb. Additionally make sure you have shoes that are fit to walk in sand. On very sunny days the sand can get scorching and can burn the bottoms of your feet. As long as you are prepared this is an amazing experience.
