Things to See & Do
The Great Lakes region is often referred to as the “Third Coast” of the United States due to the many miles of pristine beaches that surround the lake. The shoreline along the northern and east coast is a little rockier, while the beaches along the southern and west coast are covered in soft white sand.
Aside from the miles of gorgeous beaches, there are beautiful islands, many of which house state parks that offer great hiking trails. These islands are easily accessed by one of the two passenger and vehicle ferry services that operate on the lake.
Anglers will be happy to learn that Lake Michigan is home to a wide variety of fish species. There are some wonderful fishing charters available, perfect for visitors unfamiliar with Lake Michigan’s waters or inexperienced with the sport in general!
Where to Eat & Drink
The southeastern coast of Lake Michigan is home to a plethora of fantastic restaurants. You’ll find everything from casual joints serving comfort food to upscale restaurants with fine-dining cuisine. Thanks to the abundance of fish in Lake Michigan’s waters, you won’t have any trouble finding fresh, delicious seafood cooked to perfection in any of these lakefront eateries.
If you would like to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer during your stay, you’re in luck! There are plenty of great wineries and breweries along the eastern coast of Lake Michigan, especially towards the north and southernmost regions. From tasting rooms that overlook the water to brewpubs that make their beers onsite, there’s so much to enjoy along the shores of Lake Michigan!
Best Time to Visit
Lake Michigan is a great year-round destination, with warm summers and frosty winters.
