Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore
Sleeping Bear Dunes lies 450 feet above Lake Michigan and boasts a beautiful view of the clear, blue water. There is a legend of the sleeping bear that will tug on the heart strings. It’s a great story of a mothers love and is full of beautiful art that any kid would enjoy. You can purchase The Legend of the Sleeping Bear here.
Kitchitikipi Springs is one of the largest fresh water springs in Michigan. It’s over 40′ deep and stays 45 degrees all year around. You can ride a self guided raft that has an opening in the middle, which enables visitors to see to the bottom of the spring. Even at the deepest point, it is so clear that you can see the water bubbling up from the sandy bottom. It even looks as though your could reach out and touch the fish.
