In Michigan, we are blessed with super-great summers (usually), where you can find families soaking up the sun on the beaches all over the state. I love spending my summer weekends on the lake! If you ever get a chance to visit Michigan, I recommend doing so in the summer time—it's gorgeous!
About 50 miles west of Baudville is a town called Grand Haven or, during the summer months, "Coast Guard City, USA." Every year, Grand Haven hosts the Coast Guard Festival , which is a ten-day event to honor members of the US Coast Guard. Over 340,000 attend the festivities that include parades, a carnival, ship tours, fireworks, and more!
