Of course, the Silver Lake Sand Dunes is not the area's only offering. For the thrill seeker in the family, there's an opportunity to fly, race go-karts, take in a drag race, or rent a jet-ski. For those who like to relax, shopping for antiques and souvenirs, taking in a Friday night concert, golfing, or fishing may be up their alley. The history buff will find much to explore in the Hart Historic District and Little Sable Point Lighthouse. And the nature lover will not be able to resist the horseback riding, canoeing, biking on the rail trail, or the various parks and trails found throughout the area. The food lover will delight in the farm markets and the local produce.
