After spending 2 days in Petoskey area, we took our 8 yr old girls on a little road adventure and found Thorne Swift Nature Preserve. This small park has free admission and a nominal parking fee. It has a nature exhibit with tons of hands-on experiences for the kids. Then there are three trails that lead to a small quaint Lake Michigan beach area. It was very nice to walk out to the beach area that we had all to ourselves. The girls loved the nature walk through the woods - we saw snakes, birds and lots of frogs!
