Paddle Board Lake Michigan from Leland Harbor

Originally added by Holly Mandarich

Paddleboard at an iconic M22 location.

For a day on the water, off the shores of Lake Michigan head to Leland. Park in the marina and load onto your paddle boards from the boat ramp. You'll quickly find your way out of the marina, in which you can head right, left or to open water. Either way you'll find accessible beaches and clear sand on the waters bottom. Heading right out of the marina you'll find a private beach, heading left you'll find a public beach called, Vans. 

Grab a six pack, and scoot around. Make sure to grab a sandwich at the Cheese Shanty in Leland on your way out.
