Fun In The Sun


Michiganders have it made! With miles of shorelines and beaches in our backyard, it’s no wonder that we know how to have fun in the sun. Spending the day with sand in your toes, the sun on your skin, and the smell of crisp lake water in the air will have any local or visitor wanting more.

Deciding on a beach can be the hardest part of the day, considering most of Michigan’s top ranked beaches are right here in the northwest corner of the state. The good news is, you really can’t go wrong, whether you want sweeping dunes or golden sand or stony shores perfect for rock hunting.

So throw on your swimsuit, pack the cooler, slather on that sunscreen, and swing by your nearest dunegrass location before you hit the beach. Not only can we help you find provisions for after the day in the sun, but we can also help you find the perfect spot to lay out your towel and soak up some rays. Our outfitter approach to a higher latitude means that whatever your north Michigan thing is, we’ve got you covered.

Perhaps you don’t want to spend the whole day on the beach but instead want to get out on the water. Never fear: We can also find boat rentals nearby. The vast openness of our waterways will make you feel like you’re the captain of your own adventure. (Just be sure not to use any of your dunegrass purchases while motoring about!)

At some point, you’ll need to fuel up, and a BBQ on the beach or at one of our beautiful parks is the best way to end a summer day. Thanks to the wonderful farmers and fishermen in our region, local smokehouses and delicatessens carry an array of specialty goods that will make your cookout one to remember.

Here at dunegrass, we want you to know how easy planning a summer day can be when you allow us to help you find the best spots. All you need to do is get your crew ready for a great day in the sun, and we will take care of the rest.
