I grew up spending my summers at our family cottage on HIggins Lake, best lake with a firm sand bottom, wonderful.  Don't get me wrong, we had a fantastic beach, but there is a beach in Michigan that is even better.

I can not recommend highly enough  Oval Beach, in Saugatuck.   Not only is this beach my favorite, but it has made the ranking as one of the 25 best shorelines in the world.

MTV also said it was the 6th best beach in the U.S.

This should be on your to do list for the Summer.   The Saugatuck / Douglas area has many wonderful places to stay, but from Lansing it is a great day trip.

Earlier this week, the Saugatuck City Council gave the  okay to spend more than 100 thousand dollars on equipment

that will keep that beautiful beach looking its best.

As someone who loves to spend time on that beach, I say money well spent.

Seriously, Oval Beach is a place you should experience at least once, but I am pretty sure once you go, you will want to go back again.
