    THE LOCATION
    Step out the door and immediately feel the sand between your toes! This beach cottage is located directly across from Pere Marquette Beach, a nationally certified clean beach on the shores of Lake Michigan. Visitors will enjoy a wide expanse of beach, volleyball courts, a playground, and access to lighthouses and the Muskegon Channel. Be sure to walk over and check out “The Deck” restaurant right on the beach which serves up a very cool atmosphere, live concerts, and of course great drinks.

    Not to be missed is downtown Muskegon’s “social sandbox”, a 12-block district featuring restaurants, breweries, shopping, outdoor art installations, open seating, a splashpad, and two adult-sized sandboxes. Most weekend evenings one can find live music and dance in the sand – downtown! Even more exciting, the city allows patrons to purchase an alcoholic beverage in a specially marked to-go cup and the beverage can then travel outdoors with the consumer within the district limits.

    Muskegon’s shoreline along Lake Michigan features 26 miles of sandy beaches, over 60 miles of trails, and the opportunity to hike the dunes in 3 state parks and 7 county parks. Thrill-seekers should visit Michigan’s Adventure Amusement and WildWater Park home to 60+ rides and attractions including world-class wooden roller coaster, Shivering Timbers, which is 125 feet tall and over a mile long. The Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park offers another rare thrill, an 850′ luge run and a fiberglass summer luge which is the only wheeled luge in North America.With one of the deepest ports in the Great Lakes and a nice a collection of inland lakes and rivers, Muskegon County is a well-known playground for recreational boaters and fisherman. Maritime tours are offered in several lighthouses and at the USS LST 393 Veterans Museum, USS Silversides Submarine Museum, and the S.S. Milwaukee Clipper.
