About Muskegon
One reason for the Muskegon Coastline’s success is its location in the heart of recreation wonderland. When the work day is finished, residents may choose from 27 miles of Lake Michigan waterfront, 400 miles of rivers and more than 11,000 acres of inland lakes for boating, swimming, fishing or just plain relaxing.

The Coastline is home to some of the state’s finest parks and natural areas as well as numerous county, township, and city parks. Eleven public parks provide access to Lake Michigan including Muskegon’s Pere Marquette Beach, a certified “Blue Wave Clean Beach,” the only one in Michigan to receive this award. Local rivers and creeks, especially the White River and the Muskegon, are popular with kayakers, canoeists, rafters, and anglers. White Lake, Bear Lake, and Mona Lake are favorite ports of call, offering access to and refuge from Lake Michigan. For high-speed fun, Muskegon Lake is the region’s full-speed lake. Public and private marinas provide thousands of boats slips and offer a range of products and services.

The Lakeshore Trail, 22.5 mile Hart-Montague Bicycle Trail, Michigan’s first linear state park, and the 26.5 mile Muskatawa Trail, feature paved trails for biking, walking, running, and inline skating. Easily accessible form the Lake Express – the high-speed passenger and car ferry that travels between Muskegon and Milwaukee – Lakeshore Trail enables those who bike, skate or walk to tour Muskegon’s shoreline and downtown while on a path that loops along Lake Michigan, Muskegon Lake, Pere Marquette Park, and the downtown.

From piping-hot summer days to icy winter mornings, the Muskegon area invites residents and visitors to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. AAA of Michigan has ranked Muskegon as third most popular tourist destination in the state. Travel Michigan has indicated that Muskegon is the most requested community in the state for tourism information.
