USA Today calls 1st Street Beach in Manistee an excellent choice for relaxation, and beckons us with "mellow waves, and a family-friendly atmosphere."

Michigan has many beautiful beaches, but this year one of the best is less than two hours' drive away.

As part of our WCSG’s Travelin’ Together, we visit 1st Street Beach in Manistee. Voted the best beach in Michigan by USA Today, the beach is known as a ‘family friendly’ location, with plenty of activities and amenities. The soft white sand offers excellent sandcastle building opportunities, a relaxing atmosphere, and ample space to accommodate large families.

If you’d rather spend time getting some exercise in, there’s space for volleyball and other play areas and beach activity games. Nearby Douglas Park has its own fenced in dog park and dedicated dog beach on the waterfront below the observation deck near the Lions Pavilion. You’ll find several grills as well as several restrooms.

For more information, visit 1st Street Beach.

Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.
