You can walk to the State Park beach from the house. Just hang a left out of the dirt driveway and then turn right on the first street. Take it to Three Mile Road, and then hang a left towards the water, and cross at the light. Clinch Park beach is in town, and has a splash pad, kayak rentals, and a snack bar.

If you’re up for an adventure, head out to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore. There is a visitor center in Empire. You can hike Empire Bluff or Pyramid Point for breathtaking views. Both hikes are fairly easy and we do them with our small children often. On the way to the Dunes, stop for picnic supplies at Fresh Coast Market on N. Long Lake Road. They have fantastic sandwiches and everything else you need for a day at the beach. We love the Empire public beach. Good Harbor Beach and Vans Beach in Leland are also great choices.
