Things to Do During Your Beach Vacation in Michigan

Things to Do During Your Beach Vacation in Michigan

Seeking some outdoor adventure? No matter where you choose, Michigan beach vacations provide an array of exciting activities to keep you busy. Here's some of our top choices, in and out of the water.

  • 1. Fishing

    The expansive shoreline along Michigan's many lakes, featuring a mix of dunes, forests, marshes, savannas, and tallgrass prairie, provide ideal habitats for a vast diversity of aquatic life. Long Lake, Lake St Clair, and Saginaw Bay are some excellent spots for fishing. Yellow perch, walleye, bass, and pike are some of the varieties you'll find in local waters.

  • 2. Sunset Viewing

    Watching the sun go down over the horizon is a must for summer in Michigan. No matter where you see it, the experience is breathtaking. Head to Sunset Park in Petoskey or Caseville County Park for stellar views at sundown. Climb the Sleeping Bear Dunes to capture this amazing spectacle from an elevated perspective.

  • 3. Beachcombing

    Grab some buckets and shovels for some family treasure hunting on the shoreline. Relax and move along at your own pace; there's no itinerary to follow here. Wade through the water before you as you try your luck at finding some charms on the beach. You might encounter artisans and jewelry makers searching for Petoskey stones, beach glass, horn coral, and Leland blue stone.

  • 4. Boat Tours

    Your Michigan beach vacation isn't complete without some time on a boat. No matter where you're visiting, Michigan's many lakeside communities offer excursions of all types. Explore the magnificent shorelines, with diverse flora and fauna, gorgeous waters, and breathtaking geological features. Or take a tour covering the history of the Great Lakes, with opportunities to see lighthouses, canals, and even shipwrecks.

  • 5. Birdwatching

    Boasting two peninsulas surrounded by large freshwater lakes, Michigan is a birdwatcher's paradise. The numerous waterways, combined with the most extensive forest system in the U.S., provide a diverse habitat with more than 420 species of birds. Some of the most popular birding spots include the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, the Nayanquing Point State Wildlife Area and the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory.
