With a good portion of Michiganders roadtripping for the weekend, many may already have a favorite beach they wanna visit. Others might not have a favorite and just wanna go where their nose takes 'em.

Out of those some of my favorites are Warren and Sleeping Bear. But on a simpler note, there are plenty of other beaches in the state that don't get the recognition of the above-mentioned ones. I have my own personal favorite swimming spots:
Burt Lake
Higgins Lake
Houghton Lake
Pictured Rocks
Pointe Aux Pins, Bois Blanc Island
Portage Lake, Waterloo

Doesn't matter what the critics say. You have your favorite beaches and swimming spots...get to 'em. The more secretive and hidden, the better. Skinny-dippin', anyone?
