Michigan Beach Crowned the Best in the State
Michigan is the Great Lakes state, so Michigan beaches are obviously a big deal. Of course, we have more than beaches. In the summer, Michiganders can also do grilling outside, gardening, watch baseball and enjoy the warm summer months. But, back to beaches. Now, one Michigan beach has been named the top-rated beach in the state.
The crew at PlanetWare.com has put together a list of the best beaches in Michigan. These are considered the top-rated beaches, according to their research. “Surrounded by four of the Great Lakes and characterized by peninsulas and islands, Michigan has thousands of miles of beaches to visit, with experiences that are unique to each,” they state in the article.
Looking through this list, I do love plenty of the beaches they mentioned. Holland State Beach Park is No. 4, and that’s a great spot on the west side of the state. Mackinaw City Beach is No. 3. Of course, Mackinaw City Beach is one of the most popular tourist areas in Michigan, so it’s not a surprise to see it high on the tally. No. 2 is Cheboygan State Park Beach, which is another popular spot. “This beach is perfect for families as it has plenty of space for building sandcastles and pitching a beach shade canopy,” PlanetWare.com states.
So, what’s the top-rated Michigan beach? Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. That’s a great pick. “With more than 60 miles of shoreline and majestic sand dunes that you will remember for a lifetime, the beaches of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore are some of Michigan’s most prized gems,” the outlet writes. They also mention that some of the “best beach access points” are at Platte River Point, Tiesma Road, Peterson Road and Esch Road. Moreover, forests surround the area, making it a beautiful spot.
