    Family Fun In Silver Lake, Michigan

    Silver Lake, Michigan, what can I say? I love it! Well, yeah, it has so much to offer in a vacation all packed into a fun filled week. I've been vacationing there for years. My favorite part has got to be the 4x4 Range with sand dunes as far as the eye can see. Whether you have a Truck, Quad, 4 Wheeler, or Sand Rail you'll have the most enjoyable time at this action packed spot. Silver Lake also has many camping opportunities. For those who don't enjoy camping there are several hotels in town. There are many cabins available as well; most on Silver Lake, and there are some on Lake Michigan in a variety of price ranges.

    Shopping is also a big attraction for the adults. With many privately owned shops and boutiques. For the children there are two big arcades. Each of them include Go Carts; there's one that's a curvy course, an oval, and a slippery course for the Sprint Car lovers.

    Swimming at Silver Lake well, let me tell you it has crystal blue water in the summer at the perfect temperature. It's a great place to go out on a boat, whether you own one or rent one, or use a Jet Ski. And, the Lake Michigan access is less than six minutes drive from town.

    If you feel like you've done all there is to do, then consider visiting Mears, Michigan or Pentwater that are within a fifteen to thirty minutes drive from Silver Lake. And, they also offer a lot of opportunities for shopping, swimming, fishing, boating, and a whole lot more!
