Lake Michigan - Highlights
Lake Michigan offers umpteen beaches to be explored. Colloquially famous as the Third Coast, the region is known for its white soft sand. As the sand produces squeaking sound when you walk over it, tourists call it 'singing sands'. There are plenty of high sand dunes covered in sand cherries and green beach grass. The sand dunes towards the eastern shore are one of the world's largest freshwater dune systems. There are several such locations along the lake shores, where the dunes rise more than 100 feet over the lake surface. Large dunes can be easily seen in state parks, wildlife reserves, and protected forests along the Michigan and Indiana shoreline. Some of the largest dune formations are clearly visible in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Warren Dunes State Park, Saugatuck Dunes State Park, Silver Lake State Park, PJ Hoffmaster State Park, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and Ludington State Park. On the other hand relatively smaller dunes can be seen on the Lake Michigan's western shore in Illinois Beach State Park and Kohler Andre State Park.
More than twelve million individuals live along the shore of the lake. Metropolitan areas of Milwaukee and Chicago are popular tourist destinations that offer plenty of recreational opportunities to be enjoyed in the lake.
