Tips for Families

For beach trips with kids your best bet is the public beach in the tiny village of Empire. It has a playground, pavilions, tables, grills, good parking with extra nearby and it's a short walk to stores, restaurants, etc. The beach itself fronts both Lake Michigan AND a small lake called S. Bar Lake which is great for younger kids when the Big Lake is too cold or rough.
