4. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore – Glen Arbor Township

Despite being dubbed ‘sleeping bear,’ the black bears who call this lakeshore home are awake regularly. Be vigilant and give them space. This park was named “Most Beautiful Place in America” in 2011. Five miles of rolling dunes sit atop a plateau. These remarkable dunes on Lake Michigan run 35 miles along the Lower Peninsula and cover 50,000 acres. If you like a challenge, take the 3.5-mile Dune Climb.
