Great Lakes and Upper South in the News: "Sleeping Bear beach rated world-class" from the Detroit News
One of Michigan’s popular vacation destinations has been named as having one of the best beaches in the world.
National Geographic has recognized Sleeping Bear Point, which is part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, as one of the best 21 beaches in the world. It’s highlighted as an ideal destination for dune walkers.
In the publication’s summary of the beach, author Kimberley Lovato writes:
“Pure freshwater and 450-foot bluffs mean eyes-open swimming and vast views over Lake Michigan. Walk from the former Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station, now a maritime museum, or along the Sleeping Bear Point Trail over low-lying dunes to the beach. In the distance look for North and South Manitou Islands, prime spots for hiking and camping.”
