It starts with Lake Michigan, of course, but the outdoor experiences don’t end there and aren’t limited to summer. There’s golfing and skiing and fishing. Take a bike on the Kal-Haven Trail. Visit the inland lakes. Go horseback riding. Tour an alpaca farm or get lost in a corn maze. Charter a sailboat, rent a kayak or a snowmobile.
