If you're trying to enjoy yourself this summer, you've come to the right place. Whether you're looking to get your hike on or stroll along the beach in search of Petoskey stones, there's something for everyone.

If you're not familiar with Petoskey stones, they're both a rock and a fossil composed of fossilized rugose coral. You can find them at Petoskey State Park as well as other parts of Michigan.

However, patience is key, you could spend hours walking along the shoreline and only stumble across a couple.
