Beaches

Summer on the beach. The sound of waves rolling in off the Big Lake, the smell of burgers on the grill, the caress of the warm sun and the cool water against your skin. At night, there are sunsets over the glittering horizon and bonfires along the shore. Is this Michigan or is it Malibu?

It's Michigan, of course. There's no salt -- and no sharks -- in that water! But everything else about an Up North beach summer makes you want to crank up the radio and start singing "Sloop John B." Generations of beach-lovers know what a multitude of great beaches we have in Traverse City, so experience a few of them for yourself!
