Homes for Sale on Lake Michigan
Surrounding Lake Michigan is over 1,600 miles of shoreline that is covered in either rich, dense forests or beautiful off-white sand, known as singing sand for the squeaking noise it makes when stepped on (caused by the high quartz content). Lining the shore are the worlds largest freshwater dunes which provide a scenic landscape as well as a fun tourist attraction. Dune buggy rides are very popular with all ages, as is hiking, off-road driving, sand surfing, or just taking a tour and relaxing. All throughout the southern part of the lake, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, water skiing and tubing are exciting water sports that people of all ages can enjoy. Sail boats, motor boats and jet skis are also incredibly common on the surf. Fishing for trout, salmon, perch, and a variety of other fish is another favorite activity. Located in Holland is the infamous ‘Big Red’ lighthouse shining from the southern pier. Both sides of the channel between Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan offer cement piers that are accessible to the public to walk on and enjoy the sights or sunset.
