The Underrated Sandy Beach Near Detroit You Absolutely Need To Visit

Is there anything more wonderful than a summer afternoon spent at the beach? We Detroiters are lucky to live in a state that is overflowing with waterfront wonders, but Michigan’s west coast beaches often receive a disproportionate amount of attention. However, there’s one lovely little spot near the Motor City where you’ll have the chance to enjoy a perfect beach day – sandy shores and all.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
