Lake Michigan Is Silently Killing Dozens Of Beachgoers Each Year And It’s Truly Heartbreaking

With summer finally upon us and water temperatures warming up, more and more people are beginning to flock towards our local beaches. Those who are native to the Great Lakes State are more aware than most of the dangers that come along with swimming at these locations, but not everyone who visits here is as educated as some our residents. With more tragedies predicted to come in 2017, here’s what you should know before cooling off at one of Lake Michigan’s beaches.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
