If you’re looking for a weekend away, a place to take the kids when school’s out or just a spot to take in the relaxation of being near the water on a long day, here are eight of the prettiest, cleanest, most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior that help you forget that Wisconsin is pretty far from anywhere tropical.
