If you’re a Sleeping Bear Dunes veteran, chances are you’ve run up and down the Dune Climb or biked along the Heritage Trail . You’ve probably hiked to the top of the Empire Bluffs or visited the Good Harbor Bay Beach , looking to find that famous beauty and stunning serenity that the National Lakeshore holds for anyone who needs it.

It’s sunny! It’s hot! It’s time to go to the beach! I myself am a big personal fan of all the Northern Michigan beaches – they’ve got the sand and beauty without the salt and jellyfish. Not to mention that every view looking out over the bay or onto the islands is picturesque on sunny and cloudy days alike. And while all beaches are family-friendly, there’s a few that seem as though they were made solely for entertaining the kids and relaxing their parents. For a family beach day, which I highly recommend you indulge in, here are the top choices for beaches in Traverse City.
We were heading down Port Oneida Road to spend the day near Pyramid Point , one of my favorite spots. Up ahead, where the road makes a quick turn to the right, stood a line of tall trees. Above them and around them, the sky was radiant with a brighter, whiter light.
