    Tunnel Park

    Just a few miles North of Holland State Park, this beach is famous for, you guessed it, a tunnel through a dune to Lake Michigan. There is also an area for climbing the sand hill as well as a large playground and ample space for swimming, picnicking and family fun.

    Mt. Pisgah

    This one is easy to miss but locals love climbing the 200+ stairs to the top of the 157 foot dune for breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. (Don't forget to turn around and take in the sights of Lake Macatawa to the East.)
