With Labor Day and the end of the summer quickly approaching, you’re going to want to use every opportunity to spend time outdoors before the weather starts to turn cool, and there’s really no better place to do it than by the lakeside. Whether you’re looking to hike, camp, or just make a day trip to chill out by the water, it’s hard to get much better than these ten American lakes.
Lake Superior, Michigan
A popular destination for sunset-gazers and hikers alike, Sand Point Beach is a short ride out of the scenic town of Munising into the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Not only is the beach itself remarkable – lots of clean sand and clear cold water – but the views are unbeatable. From the surf, visitors can see Hiawatha National Forest and the imposing, century-old East Channel Lighthouse standing on the shore of Grand Island.
