The beautiful views of Lake Michigan, an undulating coastline that provides myriad angles for mid-day and sunset shots, far enough north in latitude to catch the Northern Lights, Sleeping Bear Dunes is renowned for its serenity and beauty.

With average high temperatures in July just kissing 80º F, northwest Michigan provides a nice break from our muggy southern heat.
