Find Sand and Sun at Sun Retreats Silver Lake

California may lay claim to the "official" West Coast title, but Michiganders can experience their own version at Sun Retreats Silver Lake. Those in the Mitten know that the real West Coast has unsalted waters, towering sand dunes, and endless outdoor activities.

Sun Retreats Silver Lake sits smack in the middle of this paradise, allowing you to enjoy the best of Western Michigan.

Local Attractions

The area around Sun Retreats Silver Lake is filled with attractions, especially outdoors. Perhaps most famous is Silver Lake State Park. This gorgeous area along Lake Michigan has more than four miles of shoreline and famous sand dunes, which are the only dunes open to off-road vehicles east of the Mississippi River. If you don't have an ORV, you can rent a vehicle to ride the dunes at Parrot's Landing. Alternatively, you can take one of the tours offered by Mac Wood's Dune Rides.

More interested in hitting the waves than the sand? Pop by Wave Club Water Sports, where you can rent all the water equipment you want. You can also bring your own gear, such as paddleboards, kayaks, and snorkels.

Don't forget to day trip to the charming town of Ludington. It's worth the short trek to visit AJ's Family Fun Center, which has bumper boats, mini golf, and arcade games. You can also pop by Amber Elk Ranch to see majestic wildlife up close. And before you leave Ludington, grab a cone at the House of Flavors, Michigan's largest ice cream manufacturer.

With outdoor attractions aplenty, Michigan's West Coast is an ideal spot for a vacation. Next time you're planning a trip to the area, book your stay at Sun Retreats Silver Lake for an excellent experience. To make reservations today, call (877) 423-4150 or book online.
