The sand dunes of the Silver Lake area, near Hart Michigan, are indeed a sight to behold.
You need not spend alot of money to have a great day in this area. If you want a closer look at the dunes, the Mac Wood's Dune Ride lasts about 35-40 minutes for about $17.00 for adults.
You can climb to the top of the Little Sable Lighthouse for a cost of about 2-3 dollars and it really gives you a fantastic view of Lake Michigan.
A word of caution- this area can become a tourist trap.....BUT ONLY IF YOU ALLOW IT!
Jeep and dune buggy rental rates are way too high for most families to afford.
Restaurant prices also vary and are also a little on the high side.
(The Deluxe pizza at the Pizza Factory will fill up a family of 4-5 for about $20.00, & is great!)
Tips: You can have a great time at the sand dunes by packing a lunch and by taking along a cooler full of your favorite beverages which will save you lots of cash. Make sure to take along sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera or camcorder. Treat prices like ice cream ect.., are fairly reasonable and mini golf rates are also affordable. Finally, plan to enjoy the natural beauty of this area and avoid the high dollar temptations and you will have a great time.
As always, be safe in your travels and enjoy this attraction!!!
