Pups need a chance to cool down this summer too! So why not plan a Michigan beach vacation that you can bring Fido too!

The Pure Michigan website did the leg work (or should I say paw work) on this one. There are plenty of beaches all across Michigan that let you bring your doggo with you, like:

  • Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore - This is a winning combination: sand dunes and water. You and your pup can take a hike and then go for a swim.
  • Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore - I'm not sure if your dog will appreciate the multicolored sandstone cliffs as much as you will, but they'll definitely appreciate the waterfalls, inland lakes, and streams.
  • Warren Dunes State Park - Warren Dunes has "2.5 miles of sandy shoreline" that are pet friendly and perfect for Fido!
  • Tawas Point State Park - If you head east, you can find Tawas Point State Park near Lake Huron, and Tawas Point's sandy beaches are perfect for relaxing beach side with your four-legged friend.
  • Grand Haven & Grand Haven City Beach - This one is nice because you don't have to travel too far to visit it. Plus, pups are allowed on the boardwalk and the beach!
