Reviews

Thank you for suggesting the park. My daughter's first experience of a sunrise and it could not have been at a better spot. Being able to see the array of gorgeous colors and then watch the sun peak up on the horizon, all while hearing Lake Michigan's waves come to shore, is simply unforgettable.
