Michigan’s Best Vacation Spot
Where is your favorite place to vacation in Michigan?
I'm going to be honest, I don't have an actual favorite place to vacation in Michigan. As long as I'm in the woods and close to a body of water, I'm happy.
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was just voted as the best vacation spot in Michigan on MLive. I mean, it's a great choice! Not only do the dunes have history, but they have amazing beaches, tons of stuff to do, and beautiful views to see.
Do you think you have it in you to do the famous Dune Climb?
Hiking all the way through the dunes takes 3-4 hours to do. It's a 3.5 mile hike to Lake Michigan. If you plan on going, make sure you pack lots of water and some snacks!
If hiking isn't for you, you can check out the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive or take a canoe trip on the Crystal and Platte Rivers.
