Summers in Michigan are unforgettable: bright green foliage, camping, music festivals, and more. With miles and miles of freshwater coastline, the best way to take advantage of the warmest months of the year and make the season even more incredible is by boating.
Below are a few reasons why boating can make the summertime in Michigan even more fabulous!
- There’s so much to see!
According to Michigan.org, no matter where you go across the state, you are never more than 6 miles away from a stream, river or lake. With so much water to choose from, you will never have trouble finding somewhere to boat.
- Water sports are perfect for the hottest of days
If there is one thing kids and adults alike clamor for in the heat of August, it is the cooling relief of the water. Take the family out for some water skiing or tubing for an exciting step up from the standard swim.
- Tour Michigan’s shoreline hotspots
Some of the state’s best restaurants, pubs and entertainment venues are located right on the water. With the convenience of boat travel, you can easily hop from one location to another and explore lakeside fun all around you.
- Summer sunsets are better on the water
For the very best view of the colorful Michigan sunset, take your boat out to the middle of the lake and drop anchor for nature’s greatest show. Bring your friends or set out for a romantic evening with your significant other.
