Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located in Maple City right next to Lake Michigan. The area was carved out by glaciers which gives it a unique environment that has streams, beaches, lakes, and of course, sand dunes!
These sand dunes tower up to 450 feet above Lake Michigan where you can take pictures, and see awesome views of the lakes and forests. This is also a great place to go sledding in the winter! Other than just the sand dunes and taking in the view, there are a number of different activities to do as well.
If you enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking, or swimming, these are all options here! You could also bike the Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail. If you prefer less active options, you should check out the Maritime Museum, Glen Haven Historical Village, Point Betsie Lighthouse, and the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.
