Beachtowns in Michigan encourage you to call in sick and come experience the Fall Lake Effect along our 200-mile stretch of sandy Lake Michigan beaches. Relax in a brilliant array of fall color. Catch up on your stone skipping, build a sandcastle, tackle a dune, then watch the most spectacular autumn sunset. Got fruit? Autumn brings a harvest of orchards, berry patches and renowned farmers markets. Late fall fairs and festivals celebrate the new season. So hang the "Gone Fishing" sign on your email box and dig into the sand. Because the Lake Effect means checking out of the everyday and checking in to Michigan's Beachtowns.
