It's the greatest show in West Michigan and it's happenning every evening along the shores of Lake Michigan. I'm talking about a lovely sunset over Lake Michigan and it's as beautiful a sight as you'll find anywhere in the world. What's better than a day at the beach spent swimming and relaxing in the sun. Then as the day winds down,grab a beach blanket and setle down as the sun takes a final bow.
In the Holland area, the Ottawa Beach State Park is one of the most popular destinations to watch the sunsets from. My wife Liza and I like to sit next to the channel getting a view of the Big Red lighthouse and watching a procession of boats making their way in and out of Lake Macatawa. Eventually we turn our beach chairs to the west as the sun starts it's slow decent below the horizon.
To help you catch every glorious moment of West Michigan sunsets I've produced a Lake Michigan Sunset Guide letting you know what time the sun sets every day all summer long. It's printed on a high quality post card stock and will look great on a bulletin board or on your refirgerator.
To get your copy of myLake Michigan Sunset Guide, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and I'll mail a copy directly to you. Whether you're new to the area or are a long term resident of West Michigan you probably know our sunsets are just one reason West Michigan is such a great place to call home.
