Let's head for the beach! You'll love the sights and sounds of the three miles of shoreline along Lake Michigan. A beautiful nature center offers details of the history of the dunes area and a variety of special programming year-round. The sand dunes will astound you, as will the vast variety of desert plants, giant wood ferns and white pines.
