Along Lake Michigan there’s a magical place where Victorian cottages line a sugar sand beach. Buffering a shipping harbor and historic lighthouse is Mother Nature’s version of Disneyland called Macatawa. From climbing sand dunes to watching thunder storms cross the lake, there’s no need for rides and pools in such a special place. Generations of families have returned every summer to sail and sunbathe or swim in warm water. Here’s a peek at one of my favorite spots on the planet, my beloved Macatawa.
