With over 3,200 miles of shoreline and 11,000 inland lakes, the sandy beaches in Michigan offer a relaxing respite for the whole family. Colleen Kelly shows us that a vacation by the lake is effortless. It has never been so easy to play in the sand, swim in the water, or find a fishing hole with your name on it...and there is still so much left to explore! Colleen enjoys a simple board game with her children, which reminds us all it is the time we spend together that create family memories to last a lifetime. She shows us how to prepare easy recipes that taste great, but don't break the bank and points out a sweet spot for some cool treats. Every family vacation should be this relaxing.
